A REDOX flow battery as a large energy storage technology was reviewed in the paper. REDOX flow battery is a promising technology for the large scale of energy storage and can be expected as a new technology for energy storage device which can replace former secondary batteries. The recent research data and results concerning the REDOX flow battery technologies were summarized in the paper. Among many kinds of REDOX flow batteries the vanadium REDOX flow battery was mainly reviewed in this paper. The REDOX flow battery can be combined with the renewable energy systems, such as solar cell and wind power.
