Advances in membrane and stack design of redox flow batteries (RFBs) for medium- and large-scale energy storage

T.M. Lim; M. Ulaganathan; Q. Yan    Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

Abstract

The redox flow battery (RFB) has received great attention due to its attractive features for large-scale energy storage applications. The membrane, especially the most commonly used ion-exchange membrane (IEM), is a key component in all RFBs; it prevents the cross-mixing of the positive and negative electrolytes while allowing transport of the charge-carrying ions during the charge-discharge process. Membranes currently determine the cost of RFB systems, since they make up the major component of the cost when compared to the other ...
