Friday 30 June: 2nd Vanitec Energy Storage Commitee (ESC) Meeting

Delegates to the IFBF are also invited to take part in the 2nd Vanitec Energy Storage Committee (ESC) meeting which takes place on the day following the IFBF,  Friday, 30 June, 2017,  from 08:00 to 13:00 with lunch provided from 13:00-14:00. The meeting will be held at the IFBF venue:  the Mercure Manchester Picadilly Hotel.  There is no cost to participate in the meeting, but advance registration is required. 

Vanitec brings together representatives of companies and organisations involved in the mining, processing, manufacture, research and use of vanadium and vanadium-containing products. The objective of Vanitec is to promote the use of vanadium bearing materials, and thereby to increase the consumption of vanadium.  Vanitec sees the development of the vanadium flow battery as a key component of the future of the vanadium industry and wishes to bring together vanadium flow battery  developers, electrolyte producers and suppliers and vanadium industry contacts.  The draft agenda for the meeting complements the programme for the IFBF and includes a vanadium market update on production and demand, research advances on the vanadium flow batteries, new potential sources of vanadium, a health safety and environmental briefing, discussions on standards and promotion, and a panel discussion on issues restricting growth of vanadium flow batteries.  If you are interested in participating in the 2nd Vanitec ESC meeting please email Vanitec CEO John Hilbert at  Any additional agenda suggestions are also welcome.
