Established in 2018, the Battery Storage and Grid Integration Program undertakes socio-techno-economic research, development, and demonstration activities that support the global energy transition and help achieve economy-wide decarbonisation.

Work within the program encompasses detailed disciplinary work on components of the global energy system and on how we integrate these components together to support energy transition and decarbonisation. Staff within the Program have broad expertise that includes engineering, chemistry, computer sciences, physics, economics and the social sciences. The Program places a strong focus on translational research which is defined as simultaneously advancing the body of knowledge and advancing the practice in the field.

Hosted within The Australian National University by the School of Engineering and the Research School of Chemistry, the Program comprises more than 50 staff and students with diverse academic, industry, gender and cultural backgrounds. The program is funded by the ACT Government, through the Renewable Energy Innovation Fund (REIF), the Australian National University, and through project funding from various industry partners and grant bodies.
