International Flow Battery Forum

IFBF virtual summer symposium 7-9 July 2021

Save the date!

Flow batteries are a crucial technology within the electrical energy storage sector with many unique advantages and benefits and the IFBF brings together users, industry, manufacturers, suppliers, and academics to discuss, meet, learn, and continue to raise the profile of flow batteries.

Our summer symposium will be held over three days with the opportunity for discussion and networking, showcasing flow battery progress, and reviewing international flow battery R&D programmes. Seminars will be broadcast live and will include a joint session with Flow Batteries Association, seminars on long duration energy storage, the sustainability index of flow batteries, flow battery instrumentation, control and operation and a joint session with the FLORES consortium of European funded research and development projects. Visit the IFBF virtual Summer Symposium outline plan for further details.

Don’t just take our word for it

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

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

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.
