It's very interesting to see the different technologies that are competing in the energy storage space in the telecoms market. A market traditionally dominated by lead acid batteries is set to change. Redflow's zinc-bromine flow batteries look like they could have a distinct advantage over lead acid, especially in warmer climates such as in South East Asia. Being able to operate at much higher temperatures and being capable of 100% depth of discharge over the battery's lifeapan is setting this technology apart. 

I'm looking forward to seeing how Redflow gets on in it's trials. The telecoms sector is a huge one for energy storage as there are plenty of emerging markets around the world who have jumped straight to a cellular network requiring backup power. This is also an important market for our client Fluidic Energy with their range of metal-air batteries. It will be very interesting to see which other battery technologies will also have success in this market.
