In order to build new capability in battery technology in Australia concerted efforts across industry, academia and government are required to develop the next generation of leaders to work seamlessly across these sectors.
As such, Boron Molecular is proud to be part of the new StorEnergy Centre. With the support of a $4.4 million Federal Government grant will produce battery materials on a commercial scale and seek to increase knowledge and develop innovative solutions for Australia’s energy needs. In addition, StorEnergy centre will serve as an energy training hub with regular private sector interface.
Doctoral candiate Ms Anna Warrington and Dr Colin Kang from Professor Jenny Pringle’s Research Group at the Institute of Frontier Materials at Deakin are collaborating with Boron Molecular to develop scalable methods for next generation ionic electrolytes. The collaboration will see Ms Warrington and Dr Kang co-located in Boron Molecular’s R&D Laboratories.
“StorEnergy symbolises the type of partnership that Deakin is prioritising, and we believe this is the future of innovation in Australia,” said Deakin University Vice-Chancellor Iain Martin.
