Revolutionary low-cost electricity storage in a hydrogen-bromine flow battery
Hydrogen bromine flow battery.
Given the unpredictability of renewable energy producers such as sun and wind, grid owners are looking for cost-effective means of storing electricity. This is essential to solve issues such as instability and overload of the electricity grid.
Elestor electricity storage systems are based on hydrogen bromine flow battery technology. Originally developed by NASA, Elestor has further engineered the concept to enable its use in a wide variety of grid and industrial applications.
The value proposition
Fast reaction kinetics, resulting in very short response times.
High accessibility, enabling easy maintenance and updates.
Independent configuration of storage power (mW) and capacity (mWh).
Modulary scalable, up to 10s of MW and 100s of MWh
No self-discharge when system is idle.
Storage costs per mWH 5-10 times lower than incumbent systems.
Bromine & redox-flow batteries for easier energy storage
In this video we focus on one of today’s biggest challenges in the ongoing energy transition: effective and sustainabe capture and storage of electrical energy for future use. BSEF traveled to the Netherlands to chat with Wiebrand Kout, Ing. and CTO of Elestor, a Dutch high-tech company operating in the electricity storage industry. They are developing bromine-based technologies that will facilitate the storage of renewable energy on a large scale
