Vanadium steels itself for future demand

If you take a hard look at vanadium, some of the same growth drivers as for cobalt and lithium are evident. But despite growing interest in large-scale vanadium redox flow batteries, it's unlikely speculators will manage cobalt-level returns off the metal. Still, there are promising signs for vanadium.

Scaling up: the capacity of vanadium redox flow systems, like these from RedT Energy, gets larger the more electrolyte you can pump through

There are several London- and ASX-listed companies pitching their vanadium (Bushveld Minerals, Australian Vanadium) and vanadium storage systems (RedT Energy).
