First principles for development of novel hybrid electrochemical energy storage and conversion systems

Funding: 2010: $215,127
2011: $130,000

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Discovery Projects)

Start year: 2007

Summary: Electrochemical energy is regarded as an alternative green energy/power source. The breakthrough technologies to be developed will allow us to realise the great goal of widespread usage of electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles, inducing dramatic improvements to our environment. It will also help us to reduce our dependence on the current oil driven economy, and increase national energy security and energy independence. The project will establish indigenous expertise and scientific know how on electrochemical energy storage and conversion technology. The competitive results from this research will provide an incentive to the Australian automobile and energy industries.
