About Stina

The grid connected storage market is expected to grow 44% annually with the market size reaching US $18 billion by 2024 (Navigant Research). Stina, with its recent acquisition of the assets of Gildemeister Energy Storage GmbH (“Gildemeister”) and Jet Power and Controls Ltd. (“Jet Power”), is ideally positioned to capitalize on the demand for vanadium redox flow batteries (“VRBs”) worldwide to help meet the World’s rapidly growing energy storage needs.

Gildemeister has been a world leader in the development of VRBs. After 20 years of extensive research and development, Gildemeister developed the patented CellCube battery, the most commonly installed VRB in the World.

Enerox CellCube vanadium flow batteries have several attractive attributes:


● CellCube batteries can store large amounts of energy including megawatts or even gigawatts of energy.
● CellCube batteries are plug-and-play—capacity increased just by adding another unit.
● CellCube batteries can have over 20,000 cycles, last a minimum of 20 to over 30 years and some that have been operating for over 10 years have never required servicing.
● CellCube batteries are safe, non-flammable and non-explosive.
● CellCube batteries are monitored on a 24/7/365 basis, wherever they are in the world.
● CellCube batteries can be 100% discharged without any negative effect on the battery.
● CellCube batteries provide high power output capacity over long durations allowing optimal usage of renewable energy sources.
● CellCube batteries are currently operating in a broad range of climates including in Siberia, Africa, South East Asia, Europe, North America, and Australia. They can operate in all conditions—from extreme cold to dry deserts and extreme tropical environments.
● CellCube batteries are very cost-effective, especially when long-duration use is considered
