Australian battery technology pioneer Nano-Nouvelle has joined leading industry innovators such as Atlassian, Xero and Canva as one of the top 50 technology firms in Australia and New Zealand.
The inaugural Tech Pioneers 50 Report, prepared by venture capital firm H2 Ventures and specialist asset manager Investec, lists the top 50 tech companies based on criteria that include capital raised, marketplace traction and innovation.
Queensland-based Nano-Nouvelle has developed a 3D nano-porous conductive membrane that can boost the energy storage capacity of lithium ion batteries by as much as 50 per cent. Lithium ion batteries are used to power devices from mobile phones to electric cars.
Nano-Nouvelle CEO Stephanie Moroz said the company was honoured to win inclusion on such an elite list. “This is a fabulous validation of the market potential of our Nanode technology,” she said.
Technology entrepreneur Simon Hackett has installed a Redflow LSB energy storage system at his Adelaide office, Base64, guaranteeing at least four days of continuous energy supply.
Base64’s LSB (Large Scale Battery) contains 60 ZBM flow batteries in a 20ft shipping container form-factor, which can deliver 660 kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy in a full discharge cycle. The LSB can be charged from solar and store more than four days of the typical energy requirements of the 2777-square-metre Kent Town property - a multi-tenanted facility routinely occupied by more than 50 people - significantly reducing Base64’s need for grid energy and associated carbon emissions.
Mr. Hackett, who is Executive Chairman of Redflow Limited (ASX:RFX), said the LSB would store energy harvested from Base64’s existing array of 80 PV solar panels. “It will provide us with an enormous degree of energy independence,” he said.
