A United Voice for Flow Batteries Towards a Flow Batteries Association

A United Voice for Flow Batteries Towards a Flow Batteries Association

Organised by CLERENS and the International Flow Battery Forum, the webinar set the scene to establish a representation for flow batteries at the EU level.

The webinar “A United Voice for Flow Batteries” – held in two sessions on Thursday 17 December 2020 – gathered more than 50 participants from all over the world, getting together the main players in a constructive discussion for the future of the sector. The participants expressed their views on the future of flow batteries and contributed to identifying the main challenges and the opportunities for a stronger flow batteries representation.

First of all, it was clearly identified by the participants that no EU-wide representation was a major drawback for flow batteries and therefore supported to create an EU-body representing the sector, in the frame of a larger international framework.

The webinar was the occasion to exchange views on the main challenges and opportunities for flow batteries development and representation in Europe and around the world.


The slides displayed during the webinar include the presentations of Anthony Price, Secretary of the International Flow Battery Forum (IFBF) “The State of the Art of Flow Batteries: challenges and opportunities” and Patrick Clerens, Managing Director of CLERENS: “EU Activities Impacting Flow Batteries“.
