We won SMART funding in 2014 to develop the first flow battery prototype. Funded by the Local Energy Challenge Fund, we worked with Knoydart Renewables to complete a Phase 1 feasibility study for a flow battery to provide support to their hydro-powered micro-grid. Subsequently, a 8kW/30kWh demonstrator was installed in Inverie. In 2016, we were awarded Innovate UK funding to develop an Emergency Energy Storage Unit to provide low cost and portable energy to support disaster relief. The first EESU backpack was handed over to Kera-charity in September 2017, We have recently kicked off a BEIS (Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy £526k) funded project to develop manufacturing processes for our flow battery. The flow battery is expected to launch in 2020 and we are currently seeking investment to support our ambitious development plans.

In November 2017, StorTera (previously Power Migration Partners) was awarded Business Innovation of the Year by Midlothian and East Lothian Chamber of Commerce.
