KEMWATT has designed, assembled, and tested a 10-kW industrial prototype of an Organic Redox Flow Battery that can store electricity from renewable sources to support smart grids and microgrids.
Based on its innovative chemistry and stack (its energy converter), this very first non-corrosive Organic Redox Flow Battery of industrial size required two years of development from the French startup and represents a major step for the expansion of renewable energy, smart grids and microgrids around the world.
Renewable development still faces intermittency challenges. Redox Flow Batteries can provide a storage answer that stores energy, generated from wind or solar power, chemically in liquid electrolytes. Before now, these batteries used highly acidic, corrosive electrolytes resulting in reliability, lifetime, safety and environmental issues.
KEMWATT’s Organic Redox Flow Battery is non-corrosive and its alkaline chemistry and more natural molecules make large-scale storage possible, whether for industrial purposes or remote areas.
