Making a digital twin of the hybrid battery at Oxford’s low-carbon Energy Superhub

The Energy Superhub Oxford in England is a sophisticated project to create a decarbonised urban environment using a mix of advanced technologies. Jorn Reniers, Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Oxford’s Department of Engineering Science gives us insights into his role, which is to make a digital twin of the Superhub, including its 50MW hybrid battery storage system.

Redox flow batteries for renewable energy storage

As energy storage becomes an increasingly integral part of a renewables-based system, interest in and discussion around non-lithium (and non-pumped hydro) technologies increases. A team of experts from CENELEST, a joint research venture between the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technologies and the University of New South Wales take a deep dive into redox flow batteries.
