Commercial interest in flow batteries and long duration energy storage made another significant leap forward this week. CellCube, one of our platinum sponsors, has announced a framework agreement with Kibo Energy, a UK and sub-Saharan Africa energy company, for the supply of 1 GW of vanadium flow battery storage for a range of applications including telecoms towers, shopping centres and industrial business parks. Next month, at the IFBF Conference 28–29 June, Alexander Schoenfeldt, CEO of CellCube, will share his views on the pipeline for flow batteries. He will be joined by speakers from Invinity Energy Systems, H2 Energy, Kermi and Sumitomo Electric Industries as we review the successful operation of flow batteries around the world.
Energy security is high on everyone’s agenda. Energy costs are rising, and we need to find ways to provide secure and affordable energy without damaging our fragile planet. At IFBF 2022 we will be discussing the lifetime environmental cost of flow batteries, including manufacture. We’ll also be challenging investors and developers of energy storage projects to look ahead to the next generation of energy storage, and championing the advantages of flow batteries.
Registration is open and places are filling up, so please come and join us. We look forward to seeing you in Brussels.
