Among the CompBat project legacies, there is the UniPI PhD Student Diana Cremoncini’s visit to Prof. Anders Bentien at the Department of Biological and Chemical Engineering in Aarhus University (Denmark).

Diana is currently investigating the feasibility of renewable energy systems where wind turbines and flow batteries are paired together to increase revenue opportunities from different energy markets.

This includes the technical and economical evaluation of the use of flow batteries and hybrid energy storage systems (HESS) to increase the revenue coming from the dispatching of renewable energy in the electric grid.

Pictures below show the assembly phases, and finished assembly for a three cell VRFB with Visblue design part of Diana’s training.

In the stack, it is possible to recognize each half-cell and its components: end plate, current collector,
bipolar plate, flow frame, carbon felt electrode, membrane.
