New research hub to drive sustainable energy innovation
A new ARC Research Hub for Integrated Energy Storage Solutions at UNSW, led by Professor Joe Dong, will focus on facilitating transition towards sustainable, reliable, secure and cost-effective energy sectors.
The Research Hub, funded through the Australian Research Council’s Industrial Transformation Research Hubs Scheme, will generate knowledge in storage technology manufacturing, control and management, and provide solutions to a more sustainable, secure, reliable and economically efficient energy supply.
It will develop advanced energy storage technologies including batteries for extreme environments, structural supercapacitors, innovated fuel cells, and power-to-gas systems. The goal is to integrate these storage solutions into existing energy networks and applications using novel storage monitoring, control and optimisation technologies.
The new research hub will involve 14 participating organisations and international collaborations providing a total input of $12 million.
