We want to support every power grid with large energy storage systems to achieve the best reliability of supply, economic efficiency and environmental sustainability.


Organic Flow is a groundbreaking storage technology
based on renewable raw materials.

Benefits of energy storage
with organic flow batteries

Flexibly scalable

Our Organic Flow Technology allows grid-scale, flexibly scalable energy storage up to the gigawatt range.

Using conventional redox flow batteries has been a proven technology for more than 40 years

Spatial separation of reaction cell
and storage tanks


Organic Flow Batteries are particularly suitable for stationary energy storage, since the storage capacity is decoupled from the electrical power unit and therefore can be scaled up independently of it. The storage capacity of the battery can simply be adjusted by tank size and the amount of stored electrolyte. Two different liquid electrolytes for the negative and positive electrodes are stored in separate tanks and circulated through two half-cells where the electrochemical reactions for charging or discharging take place.

Organic Flow batteries as renewable energy storage systems
represent a new technology leap

Flexibly scalable in power and capacity


The modular design of the Organic Flow Batteries enables integration into existing infrastructures and optimal configuration according to customer requirements.

The unique advantage is the use of an organic electrolyte derived from the natural source lignin, which is available in almost unlimited amounts.
