From basics to commercial applications, Flow Batteries covers the main aspects and recent developments of (Redox) Flow Batteries (FBs or RFBs), encompassing the electrochemical fundamentals, the used materials, and their characterization. Edited by a team of leading experts, including the 'founding mother of flow battery technology' Maria Skyllas-Kazacos, key topics covered in Flow Batteries include: FB computational modeling and simulation, including quantum mechanical considerations, cell, stack, and system modeling, technoeconomics, and grid behavior The mature vanadium FB variant as well as the new and emerging FBs using different chemistries and how they will change the field Commercially available FBs from different manufacturers, their technology and application ranges The role of FBs in overcoming the global energy crisis Flow Batteries is an invaluable resource for researchers and engineers in academia and industry who want to understand this exciting new technology and the full range of its current and future applications.
Christina Roth is full professor at the University of Bayreuth and the Chair of Electrochemical Process Engineering. Having obtained her academic degrees from the Technical University of Darmstadt and after a post-doctoral stay at Liverpool University, UK, she began her career as junior group leader at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). In 2012, she became professor at the Freie Universität Berlin, before taking up her present appointment at the Faculty of Engineering Sciences at the University of Bayreuth in 2019. Her research interests comprise methodical and materials development for electrochemical energy technologies, such as fuel cells and batteries. Jens Noack is an Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney and works since 2007 for the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology (ICT) in the Department for Applied Electrochemistry. He studied chemical engineering and environmental technology at the Dresden University of Applied Sciences and received his PhD from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. His research and development focuses on stationary energy storage systems for renewable energies and the development of novel energy storage and conversion systems. He has authored over 100 publications and 29 patent applications and is a member of several standardisation committees in IEC and DKE and the chairman of the German national committee on flow batteries. Maria Skyllas-Kazacos is Professor Emeritus in the School of Chemical Engineering at UNSW Sydney where she has been a member of the academic staff since 1980, initially as Queen Elizabeth Fellow and Lecturer, reaching Full Professor in 1993. She and her research team are the pioneers of the vanadium redox flow battery technology that was patented by UNSW in 1986. She is a Member of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering and has received a number of Honours for her work on the VRB, including Member of the Order of Australia, the Castner Medal of the UK Chemical Industry Group, the Chemeca Medal of the Australian Institute of Engineers and the RK Murphy Medal of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute. She is the author or co-author of numerous book chapters on batteries and energy storage and of more than 200 publications, and she holds over 40 patents in the field.
