    Renew Economy: Redflow Sets up Adelaide “Battery Lab” Ahead of Home Storage Launch

    Ahead of the launch of its residential battery storage offering later this month, Australian energy storage company Redflow has established a “battery lab” in Adelaide to assist with its software development and to certify its zinc bromide flow batteries with multiple inverters. The new facility will be located in Kent Town, not far from the Base64 office of Simon Hackett, Redflow’s executive chairman and a major shareholder in the Brisbane-based company. Hackett, who is developing Battery Management System (BMS) software for the residential battery, established the lab on the premises of an existing business in which he is also a shareholder. He said it was an ideal complement to Redflow’s Large Scale Battery (LSB) – one of which was to be installed at Base64 this month – “as a real-world demonstration of the effective grid-scale energy storage capabilities that Redflow also has to offer.”
