ARC Research Hub for Safe & Reliable Energy (SafeREnergy)
The ARC Research Hub for Safe & Reliable Energy is working to address safety and reliability issues, and the environmental impact, of current energy storage and conversion technologies, both locally and globally.
The SafeREnergy team, led by Deakin University, with researchers from five other Australian universities, includes internationally recognised research leaders in energy storage and conversion, including two current ARC Laureate Fellows, two ARC Future Fellows, and two new DECRA Fellows.
Commencing operations in July 2021, SafeREnergy researchers will collaborate with industry partners over a five-year research program, focussing on delivering a new generation of technologies for energy storage and conversion, using recycled and natural materials, and eliminating the serious fire risk in current technologies. With the energy sector continuing to fast track from fossil fuels to a greater reliance on renewable energy to supply electricity urban and rural communities using current poles and wires, the need for novel, safe, sustainable, and reliable energy storage solutions is creating significant research opportunities and, with the input of our industry partners, the team at SafeREnergy want to see the realisation of their research.
