On 28.06.22 and 30.06.22 Jens participated in the International Flow Battery Forum (IFBF) in Brussels / Belgium. This was the first physical event since 2019. At the conference, a large number of well-known people from the community were met for the first time in a long time and a lot of discussions were held with representatives from industry, academia and administration from the EU. In addition, a workshop of the two EU projects COMPBAT and SONAR was held on Monday before the IFBF, a booth of FLORES, the network of EU redox flow battery projects was managed and a presentation on standards was given.
On June 27, 2022, the two EU projects COMPBAT and SONAR will organize a joint workshop within the International Flow Battery Forum in Brussels / Belgium. The workshop will take place on Monday and thus one day before the actual program of the IFBF in the same premises. The topic of the workshop is modeling and simulation for novel active materials for redox flow batteries, as well as the EU-wide international cooperation in research and development. Speakers from both projects will be invited to present and discuss the status of different aspects of the developments. SONAR will present the state of the art of a high-throughput screening process on a working demonstrator and discuss it with the participants from industry and academia. Furthermore, a panel discussion on EU-wide collaboration will take place and a poster session in the evening will conclude the day.

Daniel and Jens from CENELEST attended this year’s 241st spring meeting of the Electrochemical Society in Vancouver, Canada. Together with Prof. Dr. Piotr de Silva from the SONAR project, they gave two keynote lectures, three additional lectures and chaired two sessions in the area of redox flow batteries and computational electrochemistry.
SMART Energy is one of the largest renewable energy events in Australia. As at the last event in 2020, CENELEST participated again with a booth at the fair. The content of the exhibition was the presentation of the possibilities of CENELEST as well as showing the results of some projects and cooperations.
Among other things, a technology demonstrator for the High-Throughout screening process, which is being developed in the international SONAR project, was represented. The software for the search for new active materials for aqueous organic redox flow batteries could be tested on a laptop. In addition, materials of cells, electrodes and a small demonstration redox flow battery were shown. The booth was supervised especially with the support of UNSW students from UNSW Challeng program NextGEN.
