American Vanadium Corp. says it has teamed up with Robert Nault, former Canadian minister of Aboriginal affairs, to develop energy storage and renewable microgrids for remote communities and First Nations in Canada and the U.S.

American Vanadium recently became the master sales agent in North America for Gildemeister's CellCube energy storage system, a vanadium redox flow battery.

“We are honored to be able to attract the talent and expertise of Robert Nault who is respected by the Aboriginal communities and government alike, to develop the plan we will execute together using the CellCube energy storage systems," says Ron MacDonald, executive chairman of American Vanadium.
