Understanding the Redflow battery

Flow batteries are a well understood class of energy storage technology. To date, production flow batteries have been relatively large in terms of both physical size and storage capacity. Redflow has successfully designed and commercialised a small, modular, flow battery based on zinc-bromine reactants — referred to as a ZBM2 (Zinc-Bromine Module).

Redflow’s 10 kilowatt-hour (kWh) ZBM2 battery has proved very versatile and is successfully used for a variety of energy storage applications. This White Paper describes the Redflow zinc-bromine flow battery technology to highlight the advantages of flow batteries, including their resilience and robustness. After introducing the battery, it discusses the underlying composition and lists key advantages of this technology. This paper also outlines Redflow’s design choices that made the ZBM2 battery a reliable and robust energy storage system with unique advantages over legacy battery chemistries including lead-acid and lithium-based batteries. The paper concludes by broadly dressing the topic of ZBM2 battery integration and installation, while noting that specific application notes and design guidelines can be found on the Redflow website www.redflow.com.

80 x Solar powered street lights installation at the Steelpoort Bauba mining community

80 x Solar-powered street lights installation at the Steelpoort Bauba mining community.

The Bauba mining community’s solar-powered street lights are being used for much-needed night lighting, added security and to light up the local school.

The solar-powered street light installation took place over a 2-week period and in keeping to Specialized Solar Systems mandate, made use of local community members for the installation.  Training included basic solar power operations and correct solar power installation procedures.  The community members will also be involved in general system maintenance and reporting
