The International Bureau is a part of the German project management agency DLR-PT and responsible for CENELEST. Via DLR-PT CENELEST is recieving funding from the German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) to establish this international collaboration between Germany and Australia for the years 2017-2022. All those involved in establishing the joint research presence thank the help of the International Bureau, DLR-PT and BMBF and are looking forward to further fruitful cooperation and excellent results through CENELEST.
As energy storage becomes an increasingly integral part of a renewables-based electricity system, new technologies are coming to the fore. Jens Noack, Nataliya Roznyatovskaya, Chris Menictas and Maria Skyllas-Kazacos from CENELEST, a joint research venture between the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology and the University of New South Wales, chart the rise of redox flow batteries, a promising alternative to lithium-ion-based systems.
