Energy storage systems are urgently needed today
and demand will grow massively by 2040
Electricity from large scale storage
Share of renewable energy
WITH OUR SUSTAINABLE AND COST-EFFICIENT STORAGE TECHNOLOGY, WE MAKE A DECISIVE CONTRIBUTION TO ACHIEVING THE ENERGY TRANSITION.
THE ORGANIC-FLOW BATTERY IS A PIONEERING STORAGE
THAT REVOLUTIONIZES THE ENERGY SYSTEM.
Benefits of energy storage
with organic flow batteries
Our Organic Flow Technology allows grid-scale, flexibly scalable energy storage up to the gigawatt range.
Our electrolytes are based on organic molecules. They are durable, reusable and fully recyclable.
Our high-performance batteries can be
used flexibly and designed individually
for specific applications.
Using conventional redox flow batteries has been a proven technology for more than 40 years
Spatial separation of reaction cell
and storage tanks
The electrical power is determined by the electrode material and the electrode surface area in the cells. The assembly of several cells results in the energy converter unit, the so-called stack. At the electrodes, the electric potential and voltage are generated through interaction of the two electrolytes. In order to avoid mixing of the electrolytes, the half-cells are separated by a membrane. The membrane is only permeable to certain ions and ensures the charge balance in the electrolytes. Under electrical load the battery can supply electricity. To charge the battery, a power source is connected and the reaction in the half cells proceeds in the opposite direction.
Organic Flow batteries as renewable energy storage systems
represent a new technology leap
Flexibly scalable in power and capacity
The unique characteristic of the Organic Flow technology is the use of an organic electrolyte analogous to energy storage in the human body.
