Redflow’s innovative application of flow battery technology for telecoms infrastructure shows great potential
Zinc-bromide flow batteries are making waves
TowerXchange caught up with Simon Hackett, Chairman of Redflow Limited and a champion of a innovative new commercial application of zinc-bromide flow batteries. Redflow’s ZBM battery is a good fit for emerging market telecoms. The ZBM supports a ten+ year lifespan of daily cycles that is insensitive to depth-of-discharge. It can be fully charged and totally discharged every cycle without damage. Accordingly - and unlike other battery types - 100% of the battery capacity can be utilised to supply energy to a telecommunications load without needing to ‘oversize’ the battery capacity (as is required with other battery chemistries).
