IFBF 2017 Manchester                              Programme     Purchase Papers  



IFBF 2017 was held at the Mercure Manchester Piccadilly Hotel, Manchester, England. The programme covered a wide range of topics of relevance to the whole flow battery industry.

212 delegates from 24 different countries representing more than 130 industrial companies, research and development institutions, universities and colleges attended the conference.   Speakers, poster presentations, networking and panel discussions were key to the success of the IFBF again this year.

We visited the Electric Mountain, Dinorwig's pumped hydro energy storage project set in Snowdonia National Park, North Wales.  Dinorwig is the largest pumped hydro project in the UK set deep within Elidir Mountain and is one on Europe's largest man-made caverns. Visitors saw the underground turbine hall, as well as the upper and lower storage lakes.

 We enjoyed a drinks reception sponsored by Oxkem, a very well attended, social occasion held in the exhibition area.

The IFBF conference dinner took place at the Museum of Science & Industry, sponsored by UET and Rongke Power, a very enjoyable evening enjoyed by all.

At the close of the conference we visited Hydes Brewery to see how they handle fluid flow and followed this with dinner at the Abel Heywood pub in Manchester.  This was an entertaining evening sponsored by our partner Vanitec.

Copies of the book of conference proceedings comprising a mini paper of the presentations can be purchased here.  An electronic download of the presentation slides will be available later in the year.
