Synopsis

Whatever the storage technology, it is essential to understand how energy storage will be used in modern electricity grids.

Likely applications include:

  • energy and power management with intermittent renewable supplies such as wind
  • widespread uptake of electric vehicles with considerable potential for aggregated energy storage
  • distributed small-medium scale battery storage at homes and commercial sites.
The control and effect of these storage devices needs to be understood and simulated, so the full benefit (and costs) are understood.

Additional Information

Current projects include

  • analysis of techno-economic viability of residential energy storage
  • large scale flow battery storage for wind farms
  • effect of storage on CO2 emissions
  • control algorithms for commercially operated storage etc.

We have just started a new multimillion dollar CSIRO-University Research Cluster looking at Future Grids including the role of storage.

There are a number of PhD projects available in this broad topic.
