Lockheed Martin and Oriden LLC, a Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems venture, reports a teaming agreement for future energy storage projects using GridStar Flow, Lockheed Martin’s innovative flow battery technology. This cutting-edge energy storage system is capable of storing six to 12 hours or more of energy and dispatching it as needed.
The companies are partnering to identify and support long-duration energy storage projects, using Oriden’s renewable and energy storage project development expertise and Lockheed Martin’s GridStar Flow battery, which provides the durability, flexibility and safety necessary for project success.
“We are encouraged by the great synergies between our two companies to bring new flow battery technology to the market,” said Dan Norton, vice president of Lockheed Martin Energy. “This agreement accelerates our efforts to scale GridStar Flow rapidly and to support our global customers.”
“Oriden believes in the potential of long-duration energy storage, and we are eager to work with Lockheed Martin to find the best opportunities for our customers,” said Matthew Maroon, director of energy storage development at Oriden. “This agreement highlights Oriden’s commitment to deploying new energy storage technologies to meet the technical and economic needs of the marketplace.”
Unlike conventional batteries, GridStar Flow allows customers to optimally size power (megawatts) and energy (megawatt hours) independently and maintains its energy capacity without degradation throughout project life. These product attributes will be critical as demand grows for large-scale batteries to integrate increasing levels of renewable energy on the grid, for batteries as transmission and distribution assets, and for other applications, including microgrids.

MTU engineers examine lithium battery defects
Houghton MI (SPX) Jan 27, 2020
Historically, as in decades ago, rechargeable lithium metal batteries were dangerous. These batteries were quickly abandoned in favor of Li-ion batteries which contain no metallic lithium and are now widely used. In efforts to continue to drive energy density up and costs down, we are again exploring how to efficiently and safely use lithium metal in batteries. Solid state batteries, free of flammable liquids, may be the solution. However, progress has been slowed because lithium metal still finds a way … read more
