Is a flow battery gigafactory needed?

“Absolutely!” says Stephen Prince of Largo Clean Energy, who is one of our panel speakers at this year’s IFBF conference in Brussels.

It’s hard to imagine how we can switch to more renewable energy sources without more energy storage too. We need to build energy storage quickly – and in great volume – to meet society’s needs. The good news is, it’s beginning to happen. At this year’s conference we’ll hear about Invinity’s flow battery project at the Energy Superhub, Oxford, and how a large vanadium flow battery installed by Sumitomo is balancing the Hokkaido electricity network.

Site visit

The following day after the conference, on Thursday 30th June, John Cockerill’s R&D Manager, Petr Simik will be welcome IFBF visitors to the MiRIS demonstration site and explain how flow batteries can be used in microgrids and network support. Coaches will transport people to the site at Seraing, Liège from the conference venue.

The site visit proved so popular it originally sold out. We now have extra spaces available. For new bookings it’s simply an additional option. If you’ve already registered, you can easily add the site visit to your existing booking. Either way, please visit our dedicated registration site and sign up before it sells out again!
