There is a power revolution heading for our homes – a device that allows you to take power into your own hands. Its batteries, home batteries, and they've been called the holy grail of renewables – the key to the transition away from fossil fuels. Australia is at the vanguard of this revolution - we will be one of the first countries in the world to experience the transition to the battery powered home. Find out how you can be part of it.
As part of the ongoing research activities at Josh’s House through Curtin University and the CRC for Low Carbon Living, a new 8kWh LiFePO4 battery unit was installed at the house with the aim of testing just how effective solar energy storage can be in reducing grid dependence. For more information on the Josh’s House residential solar energy storage trial check out this Fact Sheet or the news post we published when the batteries were installed.
