International Flow Battery Forum

International Flow Battery Forum 871 386 Batteries International

Date: Rescheduled for January 19 – 21, 2021 due to the covid-19 pandemic.

The IFBF is the major international conference covering all aspects of flow battery research, development, technology, manufacturing and commercialization.

The purpose of the International Flow Battery Forum is to raise the profile of flow batteries as a crucial technology within the electrical energy storage sector. We believe this is timely and relevant as the need to educate and inform a wide audience of the benefits, features and attributes of flow batteries.

Electricity storage technologies are attracting increasing levels of interest, both from those who manage the world’s power systems and from those who invest in plant and equipment, manufacturing, project development and asset operation as well as those who are end consumers of electrical power. There has been a notable growth in electrical energy storage, especially for battery-based systems. However, with a variety of battery technology types on offer to the market, it is vital to ensure that the benefits of flow battery systems are recognised and understood; and that purchasers and users of battery-based electrical energy storage technologies make wise choices in the market place.

Each year our agenda is guided by the proposals from delegates for presentations and posters, and we are pleased to offer a mix of topics ranging from the latest commercial developments in flow battery projects, supply of raw materials and components as well as the latest research from laboratories, universities and public and private companies from around the world for discussion in the conference. We have presentations on a range of chemistries and configurations, discuss current and future applications as well as holding discussions on commercialisation and research and development priorities.

We are delighted to confirm the support of John Cockerill and Volterion as hosts for our visits at IFBF 2020.  There will be an evening visit to one of Volterion’s sites on Thursday 2nd July and on Friday 3rd July we will visit John Cockerill’s site at Seraing in Belgium, to see their demonstration of an integrated micro network of renewable generation linked to various battery types, including flow batteries.
