JILS - Energy Storage: Current and emerging solutions for enabling renewable energy development


In this presentation, we will discuss the market and opportunities for energy storage in Australia and worldwide; the applications where energy storage can be deployed; the current and emerging energy storage technologies and their benefits; a comprehensive methodology for designing an appropriate renewable energy system, and we'll undertake a short case study using this methodology.

About the Speaker: Jonathan Knott

Jonathan Knott is Project Manager for the Smart Sodium Storage System (S4) Project and Research Fellow at the University of Wollongong's Institute for Superconducting and Electronic Materials.

Jon was awarded his PhD from the University of Wollongong in 2017 for his research on saturated-core Fault Current Limiters, undertaken in collaboration with Applied Superconductors Ltd. He holds Bachelor of Engineering (Mechatronics) and Bachelor of Science (Physics) degrees, and has worked on large-scale energy storage projects including the $63M AutoCRC2020 project and the $10.5M ARENA-funded S4 Project.

His research focuses primarily on power engineering enabling technologies - including saturated-core Fault Current Limiters, intelligent Energy Management Systems and sodium-ion battery architecture and packaging system development.
