ITM Group uit Kampen is de eerste commerciële klant van Elestor met een waterstof-broom flow batterij. De batterij wordt ingezet voor het smart grid van ITM om voor langere periode zelfvoorzienend te kunnen worden. Het Elestor systeem zal in 2019 verder worden opgeschaald.
ITM Group will be the launching customer for Elestor's revolutionary flow battery. Starting with a current pilot system that will be expanded in a number of steps to a system of 400 kW power and a capacity of 1 MWh of energy.
The FlowCamp network will work with a team of 15 PhD students to develop materials for next-generation flow batteries. The FlowCamp network is coordinated by the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology, and funded by the European Union’s Marie-Sklodowska-Curie programme.

On Monday, November 7, 2016, the first pilot of Elestor’s Hydrogen Bromine Flow Battery (HBFB), operating under real life conditions has been officially started in Deventer, the Netherlands. The consortium, consisting of Elestor, Witteveen+Bos, Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) and the HAN University of Applied Sciences (HAN), investigates with this pilot the optimal way of applying this storage technology on a large scale. The pilot is a first in Europa.
‘Decentralized Storage of Alternative Energy’(Dutch : ‘Decentrale Opslag van Alternatieve Energie – DOAblE)’
The ability to store electrical energy has become a precondition to maximize the generation of renewable energy. The technology to generate the various forms of renewable energy is widely available, however, the economics for integrating storage technology in order to maximize its added value is a very complex topic. The DOAblE project offers a unique opportunity to combine the knowledge and experience of top-level industry partners and knowledge institutes to create a scientifically underpinned picture of the highest potential options for electrochemical storage of electricity.
