氧化还原流动电池 2018-2028:市场、趋势、应用

针对住宅、C&I 和公用事业市场的大型安全可持续电池

尽管前期成本较高,但氧化还原流动电池 (RFB) 技术的回报时间更短,这主要因为即使经过数千次循环,其容量保持率仍然很可观。由于核心组件可回收,RFB 可保留其大部分初始价值。锂离子电池将因为实用级 RFB 的兴起而受到影响,后者能够缓解电动汽车应用所需的锂资源的压力。
Redox Flow Batteries were initially developed by NASA in the 70's for its space programme. The expiry of a number of patents related to RFBs in 2006 has sparked an industrial race to commercialisation, which will grow to become a $4.5bn market by 2028.
Often perceived as an underdog, redox flow batteries (RFB) may not deliver the same power as a Li-ion battery, but they can compete in terms of cycle life, safety, and reliability for stationary applications. Utilities around the world are avidly testing RFBs in pilot projects, while China is underway in the construction of the largest battery in the world (200 MW / 800 MWh), which will be entirely powered by redox flow batteries. If successful, this project will be replicated across the country and probably also in Europe and the US.
In this report, technology analyst Dr. Lorenzo Grande from IDTechEx analyses the different flow battery chemistries available from a technology standpoint (all-vanadium, all-iron, zinc/bromine, hydrogen/bromine, polysulphide, etc.) as well as by engaging with the world's main stakeholders (UET, Sumitomo, Primus Power, Gildemeister - just to name a few). Overall, 19 companies are included in this report, covering the whole RFB spectrum as well as all the main markets, namely USA, Europe, and Asia. The companies are compared in terms of their target markets and a series of case studies explains who are the most likely winners and why.

RFBs operate by means of electro-active chemicals dissolved in liquid solutions that are named anolyte and catholyte, and which are stored into tanks. By exchanging ions through a membrane, it is possible to generate a cell voltage and extract energy out of such a system. The possibility to modulate both the tank and the membrane size independently allows for the decoupling of power and energy capabilities, thus making this technology extremely flexible and tailored to user needs.
Stationary energy storage is a cost-effective way to increase renewable energy utilisation, as well as to implement energy efficiency measures, both at residential, industrial, and grid level. The redox flow battery technology, despite higher upfront costs and lower energy density, has a shorter payback time thanks to a good capacity retention even after many thousands of cycles. Additionally, redox flow batteries (RFBs) retain most of their initial value thanks to the possibility to recycle their core components more easily than other battery chemistries. Some RFB chemistries, like that based on vanadium, are already commercial and set to capture most of the $6bn market value. Other chemistries, like zinc/bromine and hydrogen/bromine, have the potential to capture significant portions of the market thanks to high-profile collaborations and partnerships already in place.
Lithium-ion batteries will suffer a setback from the emergence of utility-grade flow batteries, which will contribute to ease the pressure on lithium resources that are more needed for electric mobility applications. One final interesting remark is that, with notable exceptions, a sizeable portion of the RFB industry is located in Europe and the US. The success of said companies will fuel the Western World's competitiveness against the Asian Li-ion incumbents.
