Australia’s Globally-leading Shift to Battery Storage: Your home, your business, our grid
In this Energy Transition Hub public lecture, Terry Teoh, Head of Engineering at SIMEC ZEN, will explain the fundamental drivers behind Australia’s emergence as the exciting, global playground for electricity system transformation.
Energy storage of various kinds, and battery storage in particular, is a key enabling technology and versatile ‘Swiss Army Knife’ fuelling the pace of change. Software is enabling aggregation and a myriad of new business models that would have been inconceivable even a few years ago.
With the move to decentralised generation, battery storage is already being deployed in large numbers, both globally and in Australia.
Terry will discuss the market outlook and commercial choices for households and businesses contemplating a battery purchase, and provide a market outlook for grid-scale batteries.
