Product category: Redox Flow Batteries

Redox Flow Battery Systems

Redox flow battery systems use fluid storage media to store energy. The storage media are kept in external tanks. The central component of the battery is the stack – a conversion unit for transforming the energy between electrical and electro-chemical. The amount and size of stacks and tanks and the related characteristics such as power and capacity can be scaled independently of each other with this battery technology. Significant aging mechanisms are dispensed with thanks to the use of fluid storage media. The redox flow battery systems can therefore be used to create durable storage systems tailored to a variety of applications. A decisive factor for the power and efficiency of a redox flow battery system is the quality of the stack used. Schmalz focuses its development work on this core component and provides stacks for integrators.

As part of the „Redox Wind“ project, a Redox flow large-capacity battery (2 MW / 20 MWh) will be installed in Pfinztal as a pilot plant at Fraunhofer ICT in 2017. For this purpose, Schmalz supplies the redox flow stacks.
