Australia’s chief scientist says battery and energy storage a “tremendous” innovation opportunity – and a primary focus for Commonwealth Science Council.
Redflow Ltd has verified that the ES Series Inverter from GoodWe Power Supply Technology Co. Ltd. works with its new ZCell battery, allowing for easy deployment into Australian homes.
Redflow is off to a flying start for its new ZCell product, saying it has already received a $600,000 order from a Melbourne-based energy system installer, Standard Solar.
Redflow says first ZCell residential battery storage systems to be delivered to customers next month after first shipment of batteries arrived in Australia on Sunday.
Simon Hackett named CEO of Redflow, adding to roles as chairman and biggest shareholder – ahead of first delivery of ZCell residential batteries.
Traders are playing a short game on the futures market, which seems high risk given Victoria’s renewable energy ambitions and questions over future of major smelter. And a question over Redflow battery storage maker.
Redflow’s Simon Hackett sees strong interest in Australian flow battery technology, and is rolling up his sleeves and giving installation instructions himself.
Here’s a summary of new batteries and new energy storage systems that have been announced in Australia in June and July 2016.
