$50Mn Australian Grid-Scale Energy Storage Fund Launched (Int'l)

Date: 2018-11-23
In the Land Down Under, the South Australian Government has introduced a AU$50 million Grid Scale Storage Fund (GSSF) aimed at accelerating the deployment of new large-scale energy storage projects, including pumped hydro, hydrogen, gas storage, solar thermal, bioenergy and battery storage.

Potential projects seeking funding will be assessed by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA). Projects shortlisted for GSSF funding may also be eligible for ARENA funding under the Advancing Renewables Program . Under the GSSF, applicants must be able to match funding dollar-for-dollar and preference will be given to projects targeting financial close by the end of 2019.

ARENA is already supporting feasibility studies for two prospective pumped hydro plants at Cultana and Middleback Ranges, two virtual power plants trials and has contributed towards two grid-scale batteries -- Infigen's Lake Bonney battery and the ESCRI battery in Dalrymple.
