Copper-Based Flow Batteries for energy storage renewables integration

Project description

Innovation for energy storage renewables integration

The search for competitive energy storage is linked to the transition towards renewable energy solutions. The all-copper redox flow battery (CuRFB), based on RFB technology, is designed in a simple, modular and scalable way and offers security and sustainability. The EU-funded CUBER project will prove that RFB technology can be integrated into Smart Cities and residential self-consumption market segments. Its development could allow wider applications such as back-up power system in isolated areas, for energy management and grid balancing in renewable energy plants. The project coordinates a wide range of European actors in aiming to develop operating pilots that will confirm and introduce innovative methods to produce and consume renewable energy in urban, rural and industrial sites.
