Chapter 8

Zinc-based flow batteries for medium- and large-scale energy storage

X. Li; C. Ponce de Léon; F.C. Walsh; R.G.A. Wills; D. Pletcher    University of Southampton, Southampton, UK

Abstract

This chapter reviews three types of redox flow batteries using zinc negative electrodes, namely, the zinc-bromine flow battery, zinc-cerium flow battery, and zinc-air flow battery. It provides a summary of the overall development of these batteries, including proposed chemistry, performance of the positive electrode and negative electrode, and cell developments. It also discusses remaining challenges and directions for future development of redox flow batteries using zinc electrodes.
