What are redox flow batteries?

Redox flow batteries are cheaper to make, safer and highly adaptable, making them better suited for scaling up to industrial-sized energy storage applications

As a reliable and resilient energy storage solution, flow batteries enable power without having to rely on fuel powered backup generators. They also have the potential for more daily hours of usage than other battery options.

People have been exploring flow battery technology since the 1800s, but it is only now that the conditions are right to make something that is commercially viable at an industrial scale. There is a huge rise in renewable energy deployment across the world and societies are increasingly looking at how they can work this infrastructure into their existing power grids – flow batteries are one of the solutions.
