    Where will we get our batteries from? 

    After our previous newsletter we received a few comments querying the inclusion of the EU’s Battery Passport in this year’s pre-conference workshop. Here we try to explain why it is so important.  Big news this week about producing electric vehicles in Europe as manufacturers seek to find enough batteries made in the EU to meet […]

    Markets and Technology

    Why switch from pumped hydroelectricity energy storage to flow batteries? This year’s International Flow Battery Forum comes at a time of almost insatiable demand for battery energy storage, an ever pressing need to reduce carbon based electrical generation, and an urgent desire to ensure energy security at local, national and international levels. We will look […]

  • If you haven’t heard about flow batteries, you soon will!

    If you haven’t heard about flow batteries, you soon will!

    The proposed EU Battery Passport, which was part of the new EU Batteries Regulation, was a major topic of discussion at last year’s IFBF. You may recall that flow batteries had been excluded from the Regulation; it seems because flow batteries were not considered a relevant technology. Most of those at IFBF 20222 agreed this […]
