IFBF 2016 News

More than ever before, battery energy storage is becoming centre stage in the power industry.  Flow batteries are sharing in the news and many of you will have seen the exciting announcements recently by some of our IFBF friends: 

  • Vizn Energy have a new contract to supply a flow battery in Canada.
  • REDT's work is continuing with projects in the UK and appearances in the British press. 
  • American Vanadium has  a letter of intent to acquire Cellcube. 
  • The IEC working group on standards for flow batteries is meeting at the beginning of February in Japan, and this will be a further step forward in the commercialisation of our industry. 

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the International Flow Battery Forum from 7 - 9 June in Karlsruhe, Germany.

Please see below Anthony's IFBF 2016 Best Magazine article below

We will soon be reviewing the proposals for papers and presentations so that we can announce the programme at the beginning of March.

We invite you to join us at the seventh International Flow Battery Forum at Karlsruhe, Germany, bringing together all those interested in 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, and 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 industry.

We welcome exhibitors and sponsors.  Working together in partnership not only allows us to achieve a successful conference, but allows us all to achieve greater visibility within market place, and create new business opportunities and ventures. We are delighted to announce that our host for 2016 will be Fraunhofer ICT and we will visit their flow battery installation on the hills at the edge of the Black Forest during 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 which outlines our opportunities.  For further information please email Aud Heyden:
