Large format bipolar plates
for the reduction of stacking costs
Until 2030 we will undoubtedly see a stark increase in renewables integration into electricity grids, leading to rising demand for efficient and reliable energy storage. Therefore, the number of grid-connected electrochemical battery systems is going to increase drastically.
Manufacturers of redox flow batteries need to reduce their costs to compete against lithium-ion in future utility-scale projects, given two levers for critical cost reductions: Either reducing the electrolyte costs or the stack costs. The latter is possible thanks to Centroplast’s unique capabilities in bipolar plate production. Centroplast’s large-scale bipolar plates allow for significantly improved stack costs and power density in utility-scale stack designs compare to other production methods such as hot pressing and injection molding.
