This article reports that Great Britain-developed electricity storage system Regenesys Corp. has been saved from the technological scrapheap after being bought by a Canadian company. Vancouver-based VRB Power Systems said Regenesys, which is billed as the world's biggest battery, would be added to its existing portfolio of electrochemical storage technologies. Regenesys's new Canadian owner said there were 'significant synergies' between Great Britain system and its own flow battery technology. The VRB technology is suited to smaller applications in the 5kW-1 OM W range.
