I thought this project was announced last year. See the video news report on our website at

“An example of Florida’s expertise in energy storage is a demonstration project conducted by University of South Florida and partner Progress Energy Florida which combines renewable distributed energy generation and an advanced battery system to supply renewable energy generated in off-peak hours during peak power demand hours. One of the prototypes of the Sustainable Electric Energy Delivery System (SEEDS) is used on campus, the other at a nearby park to power lights at night.”

However, this announcement was posted today, including this audio. Although the VRB-ESS wasn’t mentioned by name, they discussed the battery system and the vanadium technology.
