The SafeREnergy Hub is an Australian Research Council (ARC) supported initiative which strives to address safety and reliability issues, and the environmental impact, of current energy storage and conversion technologies.

The Hub is led by Deakin University, and includes researchers from 5 other Australian universities.

Working alongside 10 industry partners over a five-year research program, the Hub will focus on delivering a new generation of technologies for energy storage and conversion, using recycled and natural materials, and eliminating the serious fire risk in current technologies.
