International Flow Battery Forum

The International Flow Battery Forum (IFBF®) is the leading event for the flow battery community. We promote the most recent developments in the science, technology and deployment of flow batteries and our conferences cover a broad range of interests in research and commercial aspects of flow batteries. Electrical energy storage is a key part of smart electricity networks and is an important way to integrate renewable and conventional energy. Flow batteries are a crucial technology within this sector with many unique features and benefits.

IFBF 2022
In June 2022 the IFBF held its eleventh in-person conference in Brussels, hosted by Flow Batteries Europe (FBE). The two-day conference featured presentations, panel sessions, and poster discussions bringing together customers, users, developers, suppliers, manufacturers, and researchers of flow batteries. The programme was broad, with sponsors, exhibitors and an engaging poster session.

Delegates can still access the conference material – including presentation slides, video recordings and an ebook of Conference Papers – via the IFBF’s dedicated networking platform. If you did not attend the conference and would like access to this material, please contact us.

IFBF 2023
We are now making plans for the next conference which we expect to be held in the last week of June 2023. We are looking at a possible venue and hope to announce this in the autumn.

Sponsors and exhibitors
IFBF conferences typically attract over 250 attendees and are an ideal opportunity for sponsors and exhibitors to promote their products and services. We have dedicated exhibition areas at our conference venues and sponsors are promoted before, during and after the event. Please see 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.

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.”
