Increasing global energy demand presents huge challenges. Bromine is used in multiple energy applications, which in the long run have the ability to secure an affordable energy supply for our future.
Bromine-based storage technologies are a highly efficient and cost-effective electro-chemical energy storage solution, providing a range of options to successfully manage energy from renewable sources, minimizing energy loss, reducing overall energy use and cost and safeguarding security of supply.
Typical bromine-based flow batteries include zinc-bromine (ZnBr2) and more recently hydrogen bromide (HBr).
Other variants in flow battery technology using bromine are also under development.
Bromine-based storage technologies are typically used in stationary storage applications for grid, facility or back-up/stand-by storage.
