**************************************************************************************************************

Sessions to include updates on new developments in flow batteries, flow battery materials, improvements in performance, flow battery operations including recent flow battery operating experiences, flow battery applications, manufacturing and commercialisation, Safety and design.

Our programme this year includes 3 keynote presentations.

We are delighted to welcome Maria Skyllas-Kazacos to introduce our conference.  Professor Skyllas-Kazacos, of the university of South Wales is well known for her pioneering work in the development of vanadium flow battery and her work has led to much of today's exciting developments. Maria's address is "Trials and demonstrations of large scale flow batteries and recent innovations."

Professor Michael Aziz, of Harvard University has researched many exciting and novel types of flow batteries.  He is well known for his expert knowledge of energy systems and his insight into the important links between innovation and commercial development. His keynote address will include "Aqueous flow batteries uiltizing organics and organometallics"

Huamin Zhang has led the research team at the Dalian Institution of Chemical Physics in its work on flow batteries, Professor Zhang has been instrumental in the design and development of vanadium, zinc and other flow batteries. His address is "Development and application of high performance vanadium flow battery technology."

Our programme also includes presentations from flow battery manufacturers and developers and an industry panel session on flow battery markets and commercialisation with representatives from redT, Sumitomo, PVH Storage, UniEnergy Technologies, Clean Horizon Consulting and DNV. Jonathan Buston of the UK Government's Health and Safety Laboratory will give an illustrated talk on battery safety.   We will also include a panel session on the supply of materials and components for flow batteries with representatives from Chemours, Fumatech SGL and Motiv Metals.

Selected poster presenters will have the opportunity to introduce their work to the forum prior to the poster session.
