Gov funding for revolutionary batteries

Printed Energy has received federal government funding to continue developing innovative new battery technology.

The government’s CRC Project grant of $2 million will enable the company to produce ultrathin, flexible batteries for portable devices.

Once developed, the technology could revolutionise battery storage and reduce manufacturing costs by using abundant, non-toxic materials.

The batteries will have applications in new products, including Internet of Things devices, wearable electronics, healthcare products and industrial-scale solar energy storage.

Improving collaboration between researchers and industry to cultivate a more innovative and entrepreneurial economy is a key pillar of the government’s National Innovation and Science Agenda.

The CRC Project stream assists in encouraging SME participation in collaborative research, solving problems and delivering tangible outcomes for industry.

In this particular project, Printed Energy worked with the University of Queensland, University of New South Wales, Sunset Power International and Sonovia Holdings.
