Many of the materials and components used in a flow battery are quite different to those used in the rest of the battery industry. Materials are sourced differently, processed differently and have quite different impacts on the local environment to other battery types. We need to take the sustainability agenda seriously. How should we do […]
In this session Patrick Clerens, of Clerens Consulting, will present the need for a flow battery trade association. An idea which the IFBF greatly supports. The need Batteries are an important part of the transition to clean energy. And different battery technologies have different applications; flow batteries are particularly suited to the urgent needed for […]
We need to understand how flow batteries are made: it’s essential that manufacturers can produce batteries economically, so they are viable in the fiercely competitive world of energy storage. The session opens with Melanie Schröeder explaining Schmalz’s approach to materials and manufacturing. The session will continue with a discussion on methods of manufacture and production, and the […]
A panel session to explore the opportunities and markets for flow battery sales around the world. Why does the grid need storage? Where do flow batteries fit this need? We will discuss opportunities for flow batteries in the British and European Markets, and emerging trends in energy storage markets in Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia and the […]
This session starts with Adam Whitehead‘s review of the performance of the Invinity Flow System, describing how its performance has been validated and improved through an aggressive research, development and testing programme. Other presentations will include an assessment of using a flow battery to provide dynamic response and the performance of a vanadium / oxygen flow battery […]
