Primus Power: Smart Grid Storage
Basically, avoid custom tanks for flow battery sites and base it on modular rack boxes (about a residential hot water heater in size), and focus on mass production economies of scale to improve the costs. Otherwise, you tend to keep running into first of a kind types of costs. You loose some efficiencies, but the argument can be made that you can increase total flow by dispersing valves and pumps. Making the whole thing modular has benefits for site expansion and minimum hardware for initial operations.
