Renewables for industry
“We are in the midst of an energy revolution”, explained ARENA CEO Ivor Frischknecht in his keynote speech at the official launch of Panasonic’s agreement with ActewAGL, Red Energy and Ergon Energy to trial battery technology in solar-installed homes yesterday.
And today ARENA announces a $1.4 million in support for the University of Adelaide to develop an online Australian energy storage knowledge bank and build a mobile energy storage test facility.
ARENA Chair Greg Bourne built on these themes and suggests storage is the new black in his plenary address to the 2015 Australian Energy Storage Conference this morning.
