Abstract

Given from the perspective of the experiences gathered leading the Ecoult effort to commercialize the CSIRO invented UltraBattery® globally:

In our journey at Ecoult we have travelled from work on fundamental battery chemistry, through product development and the process of understanding and linking the core technology capabilities of UltraBattery® to market needs, and into competition at a local and global level in both k/W and M/W scale energy storage. Along the way we have encountered the opportunities and challenges that come from being at the leading edge of energy storage, an enabling technology that complements renewable generation and can change electricity market dynamics. The presentation will give a technology perspective as well as one based on the impact of industry influencers like funding and government industry policy.
