URL More about The Smart Sodium Storage Solution (S4) Project
The Institute for Superconducting and Electronic Materials (ISEM) at the University of Wollongong is leading a $10.5m, ARENA-funded project to develop a novel sodium-ion battery architecture for use in renewable energy storage applications. The project consortium includes: • The Australian Power Quality and Reliability Centre • The Sustainable Buildings Research Centre • Liao Ning Hong Cheng Electric Power Co. • Hebei ANZ New Energy Technology Co. • McNair Technology Co. • Nano-Nouvelle • Sydney Water Corporation 5 kWh sodium-ion battery modules with integrated BMS and thermal management will be installed at the Illawarra Flame House and Sydney Water’s Bondi sewage pumping station (30 kWh total pack size) to demonstrate the applicability of sodium-ion battery technology to renewable energy storage. The Sydney Water installation will also include an innovative Energy Management System that will control generation, storage and consumption of energy to ensure maximum system efficiency.
