Energy Renaissance has announced Dr Bruce Godfrey as its new chair, replacing Su McCluskey, as it prepares to begin production of lithium ion batteries at its Tomago site.
Godfrey’s roles include Fellow of Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering and Director at the Future Battery Industries Cooperative Research Centre Limited (FBI CRC.) McCluskey will stay on as a director at Energy Renaissance.
Managing director Mark Chilcote said in a statement that the new chair’s background in distributed energy resources technologies would benefit the company as it prepares for expansion.
Chilcote said the appointment, “signals a new chapter for Energy Renaissance as we start to build our first battery manufacturing facility in Tomago, NSW and plan for significant growth including export of our superStorage products.”
The news follows last week’s announcement that Energy Renaissance would begin construction of a new $28 million factory at Tomago, built by ATB Morton, with a planned initial capacity of 66MWh a year when it opens mid-2021.
