Membrane-free Low cost high Density RFB

Project description

Sustainable battery technology for low-cost renewable energy storage

Redox flow batteries (RFBs) are a promising technology for renewable energy storage. However, obstacles such as costly and scarce materials, the short lifetime of catalysts, and the system's complexity and safety problems have prevented introduction to the mass market. The EU-funded MELODY project aims to develop a sustainable RFB technology that will significantly reduce electricity storage costs by 2030. To achieve this, the project will apply a unique triple cost reduction strategy to the standard RFB concept, while also tackling the current technology's technical problems in an integrated manner. This work will pave the way for a more extensive integration of renewables in the European energy mix.
