International Flow Battery Forum

IFBF Virtual Conference, 19-21 January 2021

“Let’s talk flow batteries"

Our virtual IFBF conference held in January brought together users, industry, manufacturers, suppliers and academics to meet, learn, discuss and raise the profile of flow batteries. This was our eleventh conference and covered flow battery operations, applications, manufacture, research and development over three days.

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 advantages and benefits.

The conference was held online, which combined keynote speakers, panel sessions, and technical and commercial presentations. We included a dedicated area for posters and their presenters. The online conference platform will be live until the end of March 2021 and you can watch the recordings at your convenience, read the papers and ask questions of our speakers and presenters. Registered delegates can continue to use their login details for access. New registrants can purchase access by selecting the "post event" ticket at registration.

It might be a bit different, but it’s still the same team, and it’s still the best place to talk flow batteries.

Resourceful sharing from industry and academia around the world… great chance to see an operating flow battery system in the field.

Student 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.
