EnerVenue, the first company to bring metal-hydrogen batteries capable of 30,000 cycles to the clean energy revolution, has announced a Master Supply Agreement with VedantaESS. Per the terms of the deal, VedantaESS will procure and deploy 525 MWh of EnerVenue’s Energy Storage Vessels (ESVs) over the next three years.
The partnership with VedantaESS is EnerVenue’s first deal in South America. The company continues to execute an accelerated global sales strategy that has delivered EnerVenue’s energy storage solutions into applications across the world
The Master Supply Agreement with VedantaESS will increase EnerVenue’s supplied energy storage annually, with 75 MWh in 2024, 150 MWh in 2025, and 300 MWh in 2026. VedantaESS will utilise EnerVenue’s ESVs to service Brazil’s growing demand for clean energy, including via distributed generation isolated microgrids, and commercial, industrial and utility applications. São Paulo-based VedantaESS provides customers with energy storage project design and management, including energy storage management software, assembly of the battery solution, installation services, technical support, and other products and services that meet the diverse and evolving requirements of the Brazilian energy market. The company’s offerings are designed to significantly reduce customers’ energy costs, increase the market penetration of sustainable and renewable energy, and improve the reliability of energy services across the country.
ESVs offer ultra-long life, efficiency and flexibility via a highly configurable and scalable product architecture. ESVs feature an expected lifetime of 30 years / 30,000 cycles, deliver 86% capacity after 30,000 cycles, and can cycle up to three times per day without rest. In stark contrast to lithium-ion for stationary applications, metal-hydrogen ESVs deliver enhanced fire safety with zero thermal runaway or propagation risk, eliminating the need for expensive fire suppression solutions. ESVs also are almost entirely recyclable, providing a superior choice to lithium-ion storage systems from a sustainability and environmental responsibility perspective.
“At VedantaESS, our mission is solving the significant renewable energy challenges that Brazil faces by strategically applying innovative-yet-proven technologies,” said Richard Phillips, President, VedantaESS. “With its unique metal-hydrogen batteries, EnerVenue’s solutions provide tremendous longevity, reliability, safety, cost-efficiency and, importantly, flexibility. The ESVs will be valuable to our customers across each of the LDES applications we work with. We’re proud to be the first organisation to partner with EnerVenue in South America and are eager to bring the benefits of this supply agreement to our customers.”
“VedantaESS understands that long-duration energy storage must go beyond lithium-ion and has smartly grown its organisation around sourcing and supplying advantageous alternatives for customers,” said Randall Selesky, Chief Revenue Officer, EnerVenue. “EnerVenue fits perfectly into VedantaESS’ strategy to bring flexible, and sustainable solutions to the Brazilian and South American markets. We look forward to working closely with them and bringing our ESVs into more applications.”Click below to share this article
