Toronto, Ontario, February 28, 2017 – Golden Share is pleased to announce the successful trial production of the Licensed Vanadium Electrolyte (VE) which was developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (“PNNL”) of the United States Department of Energy. This VE product has advantages over previous generations, including a wider temperature-operating range and higher energy density. (Please refer the Press Release dated October 18, 2016 for details.)
The trial production of this VE product represents a milestone in the development of Golden Share’s strategic partnership with Northwest Mining & Exploration Group Co., Ltd. for Nonferrous Metals (“NWME”). NWME owns and operates the largest primary vanadium mine in China since initial production in 2011. (Please refer the Press Release dated May 24, 2016 for details.)
“While announcing that the Licensed Vanadium Electrolyte is ready for commercial applications, we are excited for this recent development which is a major step closer to Golden Share’s goal to become a preferred supplier of vanadium electrolyte. We are very proud of the scientists, technicians and all associates at NWME and appreciate their hard and efficient work.” Nick Zeng, the President and CEO stated, “We would like to work with all Vanadium Redox Flow Battery (VRFB) manufacturers together to make VRFB to be the preferred solution for utility scale energy storage.”
A reliable and cost effective long hours energy storage solution is poised to play a pivotal role in the future developments of renewable energy industry. Golden Share believes VRFB is a better solution among the available energy storage technologies on the market. Golden Share will now proceed to select VRFB manufacturers as future partners to test the Licensed VE as part of pilot projects potentially developed by Golden Share.
