On our way to "green" flow batteries


The long-term storage of energy generated from the sun and wind power is of central importance for the transition to green energy. Flow batteries (redox flow batteries) have already proven to be a form of energy storage with great economic and ecological potential. A new research project by Prof. Dr. Birgit Weber at the University of Bayreuth will now work towards optimising this type of battery. The goal is to significantly increase the efficiency and storage capacity of environmentally-friendly, iron-based flow batteries. The project is being supported for one and a half years with funds from the Volkswagen Foundation’s "Experiment!" programme amounting to approximately € 120,000.
