Background – Ecoult Energy Storage Solutions
The challenge of making renewable energy generation a reliable process is also the opportunity of the 21st century.
Around the world we currently generate grid power from energy sources as diverse as coal, oil, gas, wind, sunlight, waves, geothermal activity, and biomass – each of which has its own benefits and challenges.
The extraordinary thing about energy storage is that it can unite these sources to give us the baseload power we need with the lowest carbon footprint.
At Ecoult we have created savings of greater than 50 percent on remote diesel sites. We have helped small factories to use solar energy more effectively and to ride through blackouts. And we have created megawatt-scale frequency regulation plants for grid services to reduce their dependency on fossil fuels.
And it’s all done with one amazing battery. The CSIRO-developed UltraBattery®.
Ecoult designs energy storage systems using the CSIRO-developed UltraBattery®. We work with a fantastic group of partner companies and clients who are passionate about using new breakthrough technologies in energy storage to create more sustainable and economical ways of generating, storing, and using energy. Sometimes we think our achievements, new partnerships, and projects are newsworthy. You can find our current press releases here.
When the world’s media discovers that some of the most innovative energy storage solutions are being developed by a team of Sydney-based engineers, they often write about us. If we find a story about Ecoult or about UltraBattery® or one of our other products or projects, we link to it from here. (We’d love it if you’d let us know if you find any stories we’ve missed!)
There are whitepapers and data sheets available for download, but sometimes it’s nice to just sit back and watch and listen. We are building a library of informative videos to show the potential for the unique UltraBattery® chemistry and to showcase the breadth of products and applications where it’s been proven around the world.
The basics of the technology are covered in “UltraBattery, The Movie” and we’re adding more videos all the time. Get in touch to tell us what you think or ask any questions. We’d love to hear from you.
