Given the increasing need to demonstrate whole life costs, what combination of cycle lifetime, calendar lifetime, carbon and energy content of manufacture, operation and decommissioning / recycling should be achieved to ensure flow batteries are competitive with other technologies?
A discussion with representatives from Fraunhofer ICT, the University of Calgary, PNNL, TU Claustal and Burns McDonnell.
