Printed Batteries Will Revolutionise Australian Renewables

First, there were printed solar panels and now, solar panels could house their own embedded battery storage. Batteries would be laminated to the back of the solar panels to deliver built-in storage, making it possibly standard for them to deliver energy day and night as needed. It is one of the several plans for ultra-thin and flexible screen-printed batteries that could be a reality within 3 years. At present, Tesla and South Australia’s Redflow offer solar panel and battery solutions, but the batteries are separate entities. If the idea pushes through, printed-on storage could be part of the standard solar panel in the future. The project is being spearheaded by Printed Energy Pty Ltd, an investee company within the St Baker Energy Innovation Fund and with collaboration with The University of Queensland and the University of New South Wales.
