Energy storage specialist Redflow has recruited former Santos managing director and CEO David Knox to its board of directors.

Knox, who also sits on the board of CSIRO, said he was attracted by Redflow’s battery technology.

“It has the potential to affect change in the way we use energy, both for individuals and families at home and also for small businesses and telcos,” he said.

According to Redflow, Knox is joining the company at an important time as it undertakes an in-depth review of its strategy and direction, and also increases production of its zinc-bromine flow batteries to meet demand for its ZCell and ZBM2 batteries.

“David’s presence as a non-executive director will broaden the board’s skills base and constructively challenge the executive team at Redflow as they advance both strategy and execution during 2017 and beyond,” said the company’s CEO and executive chairman Simon Hackett.

“He understands and supports the unique merits of our energy storage technology,” he added.
