October 2023 - We’ve had a very nice kick-off meeting of the ReZilient project in Trondheim . It has been nice meeting all the participants in this project and we are looking forward working on this new type of flow batteries.
October 2023 - Anish Kumar Kodiyinal will start his PhD project on flow batteries in the framwork of the European ReZilient project, thereby using the lattice-Boltzmann method to model the flow and species transport.
May 2023 - Paper accepted: An energy-conservative DG-FEM approach for solid–liquid phase change by Bouke Kaaks, Martin Rohde, Jan-Leen Kloosterman & Danny Lathouwers. https://doi.org/10.1080/10407790.2023.2211231
March 2023 - EC proposal REZILIENT has been granted! The goal of ReZilient is to fill the gap between short-term EES and long-term hydrogen storage by developing and demonstrating at lab-scale (0.5-1.5kW/6kWh) a completely new Zn-air flow battery technology. If successful, the technology has disruptive potential in terms of both extremely low levelized-cost-of-storage, extended storage time, recyclability, and use of non-critical-raw-materials.
Our research group has a vacancy now for one PhD student
