Energy and the Energy Transition webinar series

5. Storage – key to enable renewables to underpin 4 pillars of energy security

Energy storage is the enabler allowing renewables to be used as a reliable energy source. Without energy storage, renewables will always require some form of backup power generation facility.  Battery storage technology is evolving rapidly however storing electrons is inherently more difficult than storing molecules. Hydrogen is particularly attractive for hard-to-decarbonise sectors where low-carbon alternatives are scarce. Its high energy density is suitable for industries such as steel and cement and for transport (trucking, shipping, aviation). It also has immense potential as a long-duration energy storage medium.


This webinar series covers the new Version 9.0 Australian Curriculum (Earth and Space Sciences), namely, AC9S9U03, AC9S9H03, AC9S9H04 (Year 9), AC9S10U04, AC9S10H02, AC9S10I08 (Year 10).

This webinar will take no more than 45-60 minutes of your time. Extra time for Q&A can follow as required.

All attendees will receive a certificate of attendance from the Australian Science Teachers Association (ASTA).
