Australian Vanadium Ltd (ASX:AVL) has received $113,660 from the Australian Federal Government’s Research and Development (R&D) tax incentive scheme for the 2016/2017 tax year.

The VRFB battery has been running since its installation in October 2016 and the company has been able to assess how it performs in a range of different temperatures and analyse other key metrics that the built-in battery management system provides.
