Abstract:The Blue Acid/Base Battery project aims for a next generation energy storage technology with an Acid/Base flow battery. This study aims at identifying potential hindrances and the market potential for the future application of the Blue acid/base battery. This was done by analyzing governmental policies and regulations, studies on energy storage technologies and niche marketing strategies. Analysis shows several potential hinderances that might influence future application of the Blue acid/base technology, including competing technologies, budget cuts, and social difficulties. The reviewed regulations include pollution emission standards, waste treatment standards, grid connection rules, safety and hygiene standards, governmental funds, tax discounts and subsidies. These regulations can be used as reference for future development and application of the Blue acid/base battery. Potential market opportunities and conditions that need to be met in order to be competitive are showcased through three cases, including energy storage for wind farms in China, energy storage on islands and energy storage for solar panels on the roofs of private homes. The conditions that need to be met include high efficiency, low costs, safety, scalability and the ability to store energy for several months.
