Anand Bhatt leads the Advanced Energy Storage Technologies (AEST) research team at CSIRO. The AEST team investigates the integration of battery and energy storage systems with renewables generation technologies as well as developing next generation energy storage technologies. One major AEST focus is in understanding how energy storage can be integrated into the Australian electricity grid and allowing increased penetration of solar PV generation whilst maintaining grid stability. AEST is also developing energy storage evaluation methods (validated by testing) to identify lifetime and performance of energy storage technologies in Australian conditions.
