With news that renewable energy technologies are increasingly beating both fossil fuels and nuclear energy on costs, work by UTS's Centre for Clean Energy Technology on more efficient battery technology is helping lower one more hurdle to the ascendancy of clean energy.
Led by Professor Guoxiu Wang, the centre's research is focused upon the development of advanced battery technology and its applications in portable electronics and electric vehicles as well as renewable energy storage and conversion.
One of his current projects is funded by the AutoCRC and relates to the development of lithium ion batteries to power the next generation electric vehicles.
