Current Collaborators

We have a number of national and international industrial collaborators, for example:

  • China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation (CRRC): CSIRO Manufacturing in collaboration with CRRC and the Rail Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre (funded jointly by participating rail organisations and the Australian Federal Government’s Business Cooperative Research Centres Program) is prototyping a lithium battery-based device with energy density of 40 Wh kg-1 and high power capabilities to be used in catenary-free trams. This is to allow the device to be rapidly charged at the stops along the tram network.
  • PMB Defence- Australia: PMB Defence is working with CSIRO Manufacturing to design, prototype and evaluate intrinsically safe lithium-ion batteries for naval applications.

We also work with Australian and International Universities/ Research Organisations as listed below:
