Affordable High-Performance Green Redox Flow Batteries

Project description

High-performance low-cost organic redox flow batteries

The EU-funded HIGREEW project, composed of nine partners plus the coordinator CIC energiGUNE, aims to design an efficient low-cost organic redox flow battery system. The new battery will be based on water-soluble organic electrolytes, which will be low-cost and compatible with optimised low-resistance membranes and fast electrode kinetics. The new technology will allow researchers to develop more environmentally sustainable redox flow batteries with higher power and energy densities while also offering longer duration. The consortium is aiming for a levelised cost of storage below EUR 0.1/kWh/cycle by the end of the project and EUR 0.05/kWh/cycle by 2030.
