International Flow Battery Forum

Let’s talk flow batteries

We have postponed our annual conference until January 2021, but we still want you to be able to talk flow batteries. Electrical energy storage is a key part of smart electricity networks and is an important way to integrate renewable and conventional energy. Join us for our web sessions on Tuesday 30 June and Wednesday 1 July - we’ll be sharing the latest news on energy storage policy, updates on the market potential for flow batteries, new opportunities and applications of flow batteries and some of the latest technical developments.
We call these sessions the IFBF Showcase – join us live so that you can raise questions to our speakers and join in the discussion.



The IFBF Showcase is in addition to our main conference

The IFBF 2020 conference from 29th June - 1st July 2020 has been postponed and existing registrations have been transferred to our new dates. You can register now to attend the IFBF conference from 19th – 21st January 2021. The conference will take place at the InterContinental Hotel in Düsseldorf, Germany.

This is our eleventh conference and covers flow battery operations, applications, manufacture, development and research. We bring together users, industry, suppliers, academics and the R&D community to meet, learn, discuss and raise the profile of flow batteries; they are a crucial technology within the electrical energy storage sector.

IFBF 2019, Lyon, France

IFBF 2019 was held at Le Centre de Congrès de Lyon, France. More than 250 delegates from industry, R&D institutions and academia attended, taking part in our interactive sessions covering topics relevant to the whole flow battery industry. Prior to the conference, delegates visited IFPEN’s microgrid and flow battery installation and everyone enjoyed the networking opportunities at our conference dinner and the drinks reception, sponsored by Solvay and Oxkem respectively.

Don’t just take our word for it

Conferences should be an opportunity for delegates to meet and discuss all aspects of the conference topic, often in a variety of formats. Now in its 10th year, the IFBF has achieved this with social events, industry visits and poster sessions.
