Redflow has announced that it has decreased its zinc-bromide battery (ZBM) cost by 50% through technology improvements and a stronger manufacturing relationship with Flextronics.
The company is now able to offer its naked ZBM product at a cost of US$20c per kWh throughput, down from US$48c just 6 months ago. With this dramatic reduction, energy from Redflow’s ZBM product drops below grid price. Redflow has already outsourced the majority of the manufacturing process for its key product, the ZBM, to global scalable manufacturing specialist Flextronics in North America. The ZBM electrode, which is currently still being manufactured in Brisbane, will now also be outsourced to Flextronics.
