Product description

The energy transition needs technical solutions for the decentralized storage of energy from solar and wind power and the compensation of fluctuating production capacities. Apart from the established lithium-ion technology, the redox flow battery offers an innovative solution: It stores electric energy in liquid chemical compounds. The flow battery has a number of advantages that make it particularly suited for medium to large storage projects: Thus, power (kW) and energy (kWh) can be scaled independently of each other. A simple example of an application is the "shifting" of solar energy into the night. Scientists of KIT study options to reduce the costs and make the flow battery technology more reliable. So far, every battery installed had to be adapted manually to a specific application scenario. With the new control system developed by KIT, entire battery clusters can be managed decentrally. Hence, battery modules can be prefabricated and only need to be connected at the installation site.
