IFBF 2016 Conference Programme

We  look forward to welcoming you to the International Flow Battery Forum from 

7th - 9th June in Karlsruhe, Germany.

The conference location is:

Karlsruhe 76137

If you would like to exhibit at or sponsor the IFBF please contact us at:

 We invite you to join us at the seventh International Flow Battery Forum in Karlsruhe, Germany, bringing together all who are interested in the research, development, commercialisation and deployment of flow batteries.

The 2016 meeting will also include an industry day for manufacturers, developers, users and investors to address the specific issues relating to the market opportunities for flow batteries in the increasingly competitive energy storage market place.  This day will also include an industry visit.

There will be an exhibitor area inside and outside the conference area for suppliers, manufacturers and developers to display their products and services.

Our introductory session will be of interest to newcomers to the flow battery industry. 

We welcome exhibitors and sponsors.  Working together in partnership not only creates a successful conference for all delegates, but also allows us all to achieve greater visibility within market place, and to develop new business opportunities and ventures for the future.

We are delighted to announce that our host sponsor for 2016 will be Fraunhofer ICT. We will visit their flow battery installation on the hills at the edge of the Black Forest on the industry day of the IFBF.

Our sponsorship and exhibition packages are a cost effective way to create additional visibility for your company, with sponsorship starting at €2500. Click here for our exhibition and sponsorship brochure, outlining available opportunities.  For further information please email Aud Heyden:


Monday 6th June (optional introductory seminar on flow battery essentials).

Conference Day 1 Tuesday 7th June: Industry day commercialization, marketing, financing and operational experience for flow battery development with invited presentations and discussion sessions, with a visit to the new flow battery installation at Fraunhofer ICT.

Not only will we visit their flow battery at Fraunhofer, we will also be able to enjoy Fraunhofer's evening reception barbeque.  Having visited Fraunhofer to discuss their final arrangements we will be able to enjoy their good food, beer and wine and spend time networking with colleagues from the battery world.  Certainly an evening not to be missed.

We thank Fraunhofer for organising their evening industry visit and reception.

Conference Days 2 & 3 Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th June: Scientific, technical and commercial papers on flow battery research, development, demonstration and deployment. Including a conference evening reception & dinner on Wednesday 8th June. 

The evening reception/dinner will be held at the Scheibenhardt Restaurant at the Scheibenhardt Golf Club, a former hunting lodge on the outskirts of Ettlingen.  They are ready to welcome us with German foods and wines.   For further information regarding the venue please visit their website:  On arrival we will be treated to sparkling wine and entrees, followed by a three course dinner menu, which will be typically German and will cater for those with various needs.  A sure way to relax a little after 2 long days discussing and understanding the world of flow batteries whilst having time to network and gain new business opportunities.  

We would like to thank UET once again for supporting the conference evening dinner.
