StorTera is a UK based designer and manufacturer of ground-breaking energy storage systems with bespoke power electronics, controls and software. Our main innovation is the single liquid flow battery, a promising technology with one energy-dense, rechargeable liquid comprised of low-cost, abundant and natural materials. We also have a range of small to large scale energy storage products that include Lithium Ferrous Phosphate technology, a safe alternative to mainstream battery systems that does not include rare earth metals that are often mined unethically.
Our artificial intelligence-based control system optimises the performance of energy storage by; responding to grid and weather data, learning usage behaviour to maximise profitability and implementing our unique battery management system. We are currently adapting our flow battery to make it suitable for Sub-Saharan climates and applications under a project funded by the Faraday Institution, the UK’s flagship battery research programme. Project partners include the University of Strathclyde and the Power Networks Demonstration Centre in Scotland. The project includes stakeholder engagement with African organisations that currently use energy storage systems in order to establish local needs and challenges.
