The second edition of the Metal-Air Batteries International Congress took place from 7th to 10th March at the Magdalena Palace in Santander. The congress hosted various presentations on the milestones achieved and the future challenges for further development of the different types of metal-air batteries, which are considered strong candidates to meet the urgent needs of the market in sectors such as electric vehicles, smart grids and consumer electronics.
Tecnicas Reunidas attended the conferences to give an update of the progress of the LIFE ZAESS project. As a highlight, the assembly of the 1 kW/4 kWh zinc-air flow battery pilot plant is nearing completion to give way for the series of tests planned for validation. Simultaneously, the tasks of technical-economic and environmental impact study for the scaled 1 MW/4 MWh plant will be developed.
Finally, the opportunity was taken to invite attendees to the LIFE ZAESS Workshop on redox flow batteries, which will take place in Madrid on 14 June. National experiences on different technologies of flow batteries will be presented, regarding both the development process and the practical use.
