International Flow Battery Forum

Our conference planned in Düsseldorf from 30th June – 2nd July has been postponed and will now take place during the third week in January 2021. The venue is the same – the Intercontinental Hotel in Düsseldorf. We will hold an interactive web based IFBF® showcase on 30th June 2020 to present and discuss the most important issues in our industry.
Please continue to keep 30th June 2020 clear for this event.

Let’s talk flow batteries

Welcome to the leading international conference for flow batteries. Electrical energy storage is a key part of smart electricity networks and integrator for renewable and conventional energy. Flow batteries are a low cost and environmentally friendly solution for electrical energy storage. We cover all aspects, research, development, technology, manufacturing, commercialisation and deployment of flow batteries. We bring together customers, users, suppliers, manufacturers, developers, academics, researchers, financiers and investors and all those with an interest in flow batteries.

Come and share your knowledge as we develop our scientific and engineering vision of widespread energy storage and help secure the manufacturing base, commercialisation options and widespread deployment of flow batteries.

IFBF 2019, Lyon, France

IFBF 2019 was held at Le Centre de Congrès de Lyon, France. The event attracted over 250 delegates from industry, R&D institutions and academia. There were numerous informative presentations and panel discussions which covered a wide range of topics relevant to the whole flow battery industry. Delegates visited IFPEN’s microgrid and flow battery installation and enjoyed the networking opportunities at the Solvay sponsored conference dinner and the Oxkem sponsored drinks reception.

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.

Energy Storage Journal – Winter 2019

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.
