FLORES workshop on digital twins for flow batteries - a roadmap toward redox flow battery passport

The European Battery Regulation foresees monitoring of batteries on their global warming potential and utilization of critical raw materials. FLORES, a network of 13 EU-funded projects, invites speakers to show best practice examples from Lithium-Ion battery applications and other areas to define a roadmap for redox flow batteries towards a battery passport.

How can European academia pave the way for standardized LCA/virtual battery twins?

The European Battery Regulation foresees monitoring of batteries regarding their global warming potential and utilization of critical raw materials. For this, each industrial battery above 2 kWh must have a battery passport. With the data generated by the battery passport, battery models will be fed to achieve real-time data about the global warming potential of the battery and the use-time of critical raw materials. This should enable consumers to choose the most sustainable battery solution and put pressure on reducing critical materials, and should also enable reuse and recycling approaches, such as second-life applications.

The prerequisite for such a battery passport is a virtual twin of a battery and a standardized way to define global warming potential for batteries along the whole lifecycle of a battery. For Lithium Ion Batteries (LIB), standardized life cycle assessment as well as virtual twins are already under development. For redox flow batteries, no such efforts have been made so far.

In this workshop, the FLORES network will showcase best practice examples from LIB and tries to define a roadmap for RFB to come to a redox flow battery passport.
