Our products

Product category: Redox Flow Batteries

Redox-flow batteries

Redox-flow batteries are highly efficient and have a longer service life than conventional batteries. As the energy is stored in external tanks, the battery capacity can be scaled independently of the rated battery power. We offer expertise in the following areas:
  • Material development and characterization
  • Redox chemistry
  • Stack development and battery systems
  • Simulation
  • Redox-flow application center
