Special Accolade

Michael Bryce Patron's Award

LAVO™ — Green Energy Hydrogen Battery

The Award recognises and celebrates the best Australian designed product, service or project in the annual Australian Good Design Awards and is awarded to an entry that has the potential to shape the future economic, social, cultural and environmental aspects of our planet.  

This year's winner, LAVO™ is the world’s first integrated hybrid hydrogen battery that combines with rooftop solar to deliver sustainable, reliable, and renewable green energy for residential and commercial properties. The hydrogen battery system works by drawing electricity from a rooftop solar array, using an electrolyser to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, storing the hydrogen in the LAVO™ Hydride vessels and dispatching this as electricity via a fuel cell when needed.

Tackling a global energy problem, this remarkable design innovation showcases what can be achieved through university and industry collaboration.
