Global technology powerhouse Siemens and Australian energy solutions provider Ampcontrol recently announced a collaboration agreement on renewable energy.

The two industry giants have agreed to work together on developing cutting-edge technology for battery energy storage and grid applications in Australia’s thriving renewable energy market.

The agreement will focus on solutions for battery energy storage and grid applications designed around Siemens’ renowned SINAMICS S120 inverters that provides virtual synchronous generator functionalities for system strength and grid stability in the network.

“It’s great to formalise the relationship with Ampcontrol who we’ve worked with for many years. This comes at a critical time for the renewable energy sector and the energy transition,” Siemens head of digital industries division in Australia and New Zealand Darryl Kaufmann said.

“A successful energy transition requires collaboration – especially to scale up and meet our net zero commitments.

“It also requires innovative and versatile thinking, which is supported by digitalisation and automation.”

The partnership comes as demand for such solutions is surging due to the nation’s rapid expansion of renewable energy sources like solar and wind power.

By joining forces, the two companies aim to increase digitalisation, bolster grid resilience, and support Australia’s transition to net zero emissions.

“The influx of renewable energy sources in Australia means the greater the challenge for stable and sustainable storage and transmission solutions,” Ampcontrol managing director and CEO Rod Henderson said.

“Our collaboration with Siemens will ensure we can deliver these solutions to our customers quicker than we have ever been able to, helping industry to decarbonise and helping make net zero a reality,” he said.

With over 1200 employees in Australia, Ampcontrol was recently named one of the country’s top 10 most innovative manufacturers for 2024.
