International Flow Battery Forum

IFBF 2023 Prague, Czech Republic, 27–29 June 2023

The International Flow Battery Forum (IFBF®) is the leading event for the flow battery community. The IFBF promotes the most recent developments in the science, technology and commercialisation of flow batteries. Our conferences cover a broad range of interests in the research and commercial aspects of flow batteries. Since 2010 the IFBF has held eleven in-person conferences attracting over 200 attendees each year. Adapting to the constraints of COVID, the IFBF held three virtual events attracting similar numbers. Our most recent conference in Brussels, Belgium in June 2022 had over 250 delegates.

In June 2023 the IFBF will hold its twelfth in-person conference in Prague, Czech Republic, in collaboration with Flow Batteries Europe. Over three days the conference will feature talks, panel sessions, open discussions, networking breaks, a poster session, conference dinner and a local site visit. We will discuss the latest innovations, policy updates and market challenges for the development of the flow battery sector. Business leaders, policy makers, developers and researchers will share information and forecasts around the thriving world of energy storage and the important role of flow batteries. Please see our preliminary programme for more information.

Sponsors and exhibitors

IFBF conferences are an ideal opportunity for sponsors and exhibitors to promote their products and services, develop contacts and create new business. Sponsors gain increased visibility before and during the conference. Exhibitors will be on display in our dedicated exhibition area throughout the conference.

This year’s conference is supported by Pinflow, a pioneering flow battery company based in Pilsen, Czech Republic. Please join them and visit the sponsors and exhibitors page for more information.

Don’t just take our word for it

The IFBF 2022 was a great success again! The presentations, the networking, and the opportunities for executive meetings make the IFBF the essential event for the flow battery community.

First time attendee. Really enjoyed the community. Good mixture of science, companies, suppliers etc. for a broad band of topics. Looking forward to next year.”

Effective way of connecting industry and academia, which helps identify problems relevant to commercialisation.”

Academic Attendee, IFBF 2019

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.”
