In mid-March 2018, Redflow manufactured its first batch of ZBM2 zinc-bromine flow batteries using battery stacks made by its new Thailand factory.

Redflow is targeting sectors where its products can replace conventional batteries - especially lead-acid batteries.

The company is prioritising market development and sales to mature segments with a large, proven and ongoing demand for energy storage.

At the end of March 2018, Redflow appointed a new technology executive, Tim Harris, as its new CEO.

Harris will focus on the company’s growth and commercialisation.

He has extensive international business experience from the telecommunications sector, a key market for Redflow.
