The market for renewable energies is growing rapidly. In the context of this rapid change, there are numerous opportunities for innovative services related to providing electrical energy. The metal-free redox flow battery is the ideal storage solution for long-term projects. Not influenced by metal price volatility, the battery can be integrated at stable and plannable costs – a key advantage for project planners and their end customers.
Specific areas of use are:
- Storing renewable energies
- Charging stations for e-mobility
- Off-grid applications / insular operation
- Optimising private consumption
- Emergency power and uninterruptible power supply
- Grid stabilisation
- Recuperation in industrial processes
- And others
With at least 10,000 charging cycles, it is one of the most resilient battery technologies on the market and is therefore particularly suitable for industrial uses – connected to PV (photovoltaic) or wind power systems and to recover energy from production processes. It is neither flammable nor explosive, and it is free of heavy metals and acids – which means that it offers high safety. Owing to the metal-free active substances, our flow battery can be easily maintained, put in operation at reliable costs, facilitating project financing and insurance. It is also suitable for off-grid operation, particularly for stand-alone use.
Application in power supply
Ensuring grid stability is crucial for a breakthrough in the transformation of the energy system. Storage facilities are needed to compensate for fluctuations in renewable energy production. Redox flow batteries are ideal for a reliable power supply. Scalability, decentralised use and stable storage properties make them ideal storage devices for regenerative electricity. Our flow battery has additional positive environmental and safety features.
Our battery does not compete with lithium-ion batteries when it comes to mobile applications, for example, in electric cars or smartphones. It is, however, a sustainable, safe alternative in the field of stationary batteries. Unlike lithium-ion batteries, the metal-free battery can dispense with critical raw materials from unsafe countries of origin. It is possible to produce it entirely in Europe and thus avoid environmental damage and inhumane working conditions – as our mission is a safe, clean storage solution for green, clean energy.
Stationary use in e-mobility
The stationary redox flow battery perfectly complements the mobile lithium battery in electric cars. It can store renewable energy until a car is recharged, making the electricity accessible at any time. It is also a cost-effective solution to expand grid capacities of rapidly growing charging infrastructures.
Who are the users?
Our metal-free redox flow batteries are ideal for systems of 100 kW plus. Thus, they are a good solution for:
- PV and wind farm operators
- Energy suppliers
- Infrastructure service providers
- Commercial and industrial enterprises
- Transport companies
As the power and capacity of our metal-free redox flow battery is scalable, it offers a wide range of uses. It is easiest to use our BASIC modules with 400 kWh and 100 kW.
