HBr Flow Batteries
Electricity Storage at an unrivalled cost level
The choice for hydrogen and bromine is purely driven by Elestor’s mission to build a storage system with the lowest possible storage costs per kWh. While taking full advantage of the typical flow battery features, this mission cannot be accomplished without an inexpensive chemistry.
Hydrogen and bromine are abundantly available on a global scale. The supply is not restricted to geographical availability, and cannot be dominated by a small group of suppliers (unlike Lithium, Cobalt and Vanadium).
The above factors add up to very low-priced active materials. Not only for today, but for decades to come, when large volumes are required for high volume production of hydrogen bromine flow batteries.
Another advantage of selecting hydrogen and bromine is that these enable a high power density [W/m2] as well as a high energy density [kWh/m3], both contributing to the reduction of storage costs per kWh.
Since the chemical reaction of Elestor’s storage systems is 100% reversible, its storage capacity [kWh] remains unchanged during the lifetime.
Introduces an LCoS which is 2 to 3 times lower than of the nearest technology.
Hydrogen and bromine enable a high power density [W/m2].
The chemicals remain in the system without the need for human intervention, inherently ruling out risks related to human error if handled improperly.
Hydrogen and bromine enable a high energy density [kWh/m3].
