Flow Battery, the new solution for ESS market

An ESS (Energy Storage System) is a device that stores electric power energy that is delivered from the power plant, transmitted to the substation and distributed to the end consumer. Pumped storage power plant and UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) are typical energy storage systems which were widely used from the past. However the application market of ESS is much more diverse and can be classified into 19 areas. Among many ESS technologies, flow battery technology shows high potential and is expected to be applied in various application markets in the future.

This report contains broad range of topics related to flow battery, one of the most influential technology of ESS. The report looks into the history of flow battery and various redox couples and describes component parts of the battery.

In addition, the report includes patent trend analysis of flow battery by country, company and research institution. The trend of major flow battery research institution and companies of each country are covered in the report

The report mainly focuses on the market of the flow battery. About 85 flow batteries (small-scale READ MORE >
