Over two days, school classes and interested citizens were able to learn about the current state of research in the Bonn region in Germany. To explain the screening process to be developed in SONAR, Fraunhofer SCAI challenged visitors to find the best combination of active materials to build a complete redox flow battery cell. In general the topic of energy storage and in particular flow batteries received a lot of attention and encouragement.
SONAR is an international collaborative project of several outstanding research institutes and universities to develop a model-based tool to find new organic active materials for future redox flow batteries. The University of New South Wales and CENELEST are Partners in SONAR.
