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
