The S4 Project
The Smart Sodium Storage System (S4) Project is a $10.6M project which aims to develop and demonstrate novel sodium-ion battery technologies for use in renewable energy storage applications.
The S4 Project is funded in part by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), and is being led by the University of Wollongong. Our Consortium Partners include Liao Ning Hong Cheng Electric Power Co., Hebei ANZ New Energy Technology Co., McNair Technology Co., and Sydney Water.
We'll be demonstrating these innovative sodium-ion batteries at the Illawarra Flame House in Wollongong, and the Bondi Sewage Pumping Station - located just behind Sydney's iconic Bondi Beach. The S4 Project commenced in early 2016 and will conclude in 2020.
