Project summary description:
The aim of this project is to manufacture clean power generation and storage in a modular power bank that can drive power loads of up to 100kW in a single pack. Each power bank is a fully integrated system that generates, stores and consumes hydrogen on-site. The modular power banks are approximately six metres long and three metres wide. The modularity concept can allow for scaling depending on on-site requitements.

The company will use electrolyser technology developed at CSIRO in its system. The goal of the project is to store clean energy in large amounts, enabling off-grid infrastructure and lower cost renewables-based power options to regional/remote communities and microgrid solutions, including in agricultural, mining and telecommunications uses.
