Elestor develops a revolutionary low-cost flow battery, thereby reducing the costs for storing electricity to an absolute minimum. To realize this, low cost and abundant active materials (hydrogen and bromine) are used, as well as a compact and easy to manufacture cell, and a (patented) simplified system design. This triple cost reduction strategy results in the lowest possible cost for storing electricity.
Since 2015, several storage systems have been operational in the Elestor laboratories in Arnhem, the Netherlands, and the first test & evaluation systems are operational in the field. In parallel, a fast growing and enthusiastic team is working hard on maturing this technology in anticipation of the commercial launch of larger storage systems in 2019.
