EPFL Swiss Dual-Circuit Redox Flow Battery
In November 2013 the Laboratory of Physical and Analytical Electrochemistry (LEPA) received funding from the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) and other project partners to scale-up a dual-circuit redox flow battery to the demonstrator level. The objective is to adapt a commercial 10 kW redox flow battery with secondary circuits which will then be operated and optimised to generate hydrogen alongside storing electrochemical energy. This approach is designed to complement electrochemical energy storage so as to circumvent the low energy density of the RFBs.
