Shell GameChanger supports validation of RFC Power’s long duration energy storage solution
Feb 28, 2022
RFC Power, a leading developer of flow battery systems based in London, UK, will be part of Shell’s GameChanger Programme. RFC Power was selected by a panel of Shell technology experts and will receive advice and funding to accelerate the scale up of its hydrogen / manganese flow battery system.
RFC Power’s system combines battery performance (high single cell voltage, high power density, high round trip efficiency and extremely long cycle-life) with very low capital costs as the electrolyte is based on inexpensive, non-toxic, abundant materials, delivering the cost-effective long duration energy storage required to support the transition to a low carbon energy system.
RFC Power was one of 5 Start-Up track Finalists in the 2020 Shell New Energy Challenge. RFC Power was identified out of hundreds of start-ups as having a disruptive technology in long duration storage, a critical technology area for the energy transition.
