BALIHT develops a new organic redox flow battery suitable for use at temperatures of up to 80ºC, without the need for a cooling system. This innovation allows the battery to be up to 20% more energy efficient than existing organic redox flow batteries.
With electrification being one of the main pathways to decarbonisation, batteries have a key role to play. At every moment, the consumption of electricity must be matched with the generation of electricity, which is difficult to do with non-continuous renewable sources. Batteries are therefore crucial for storing energy when available and for releasing it into the electrical grid when no energy is generated.
