Abstract

In this report I will summarize the key findings from modeling and literature review on the Ultrabatteries technology from a Techno-economic analysis perspective. Key findings:

- The Ultrabattery has fewer technical obstacles than Lithium as presented.

- The Ultrabattery may have a payback of as low as 5 years compared with Lithium’s 7 years as modeled under assumptions.

- There is scope for this technology and potential for residential storage growth in the WA market.

- Developments in the market in economics of electricity and the photovoltaic (PV) and energy storage system improvements in cost will help the growth of the market.
