Brief description This project aims to develop sodium-ion batteries for renewable energy storage and conversion. Electrical energy storage is important for integrating renewable energy sources, improving grid reliability, and intelligently managing peak demand. Sodium-ion batteries are promising for large scale energy storage applications because of low cost and natural abundance of sodium. This project will integrate materials architecture design, synthesise cathode materials, model and test electrochemistry, and make prototype batteries. This project is expected to help the Government meet its renewable energy target, improve utilities’ power quality and reliability, create industry opportunities, and maintain Australia’s high standing in energy research.
