International Flow Battery Forum

Let’s talk flow batteries

Electrical energy storage is a key part of smart electricity networks and is an important way to integrate renewable and conventional energy. We had two web sessions where we shared the latest news on energy storage policy, updates on the market potential for flow batteries, new opportunities and applications of flow batteries and some of the latest technical developments.
You can find recordings of these sessions and downloads of the presentations below.

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.

Flow Battery Manufacturer, IFBF 2019

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.

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.
