Duke Operating NC's Largest Battery Storage System (Ind. Report)
Duke Energy
Date: 2020-08-28
Charlotte, North Carolina-headquartered utility Duke Energy reports it has begun operating the largest battery storage system in the Tar Heel State.

Duke noted it plans to invest about $600 million for 375 MW of energy storage across its regulated businesses. The utility aims to reduce carbon emissions by at least 50 pct by 2030 and achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, according to a company statement.

The 9-MW lithium-ion Samsung battery system in Ashville came in at roughly $15 million and will provide energy support to the electric system including frequency regulation and other grid support services.

Neoen Plans Massive Aussie Wind, Solar+Storage Project (Int'l.)
Date: 2020-08-21
Paris-based independent renewable energy developer Neoen reports the filing of its development application for its $3 billion, 163-turbine Goyder South wind, solar and storage project in South Australia . The plan proposes a total of 1,200MW of wind energy, 600MW of solar PV, and 900MW/1800MWh of lithium-ion battery storage.

Each stage would be delivered in three equal tranches of 400MW wind, 200MW solar and 300MW/600MWh of lithium-ion battery storage. Combined, they would generate around 4.8 terawatt hours of zero emissions power each year, nearly doubling the current output of wind and solar in the state, and taking South Australia close to the Liberal government's net 100 pct renewables target just on its own.

The solar farm would be spread across 3,000 hectares, the lithium-ion batteries would deliver 900MW with two hours of storage, and associated infrastructure for connection to the electricity grid would include three substations, access tracks, underground connection cabling and transmission lines.

India Planning National Li-Ion Battery Production (Int'l Report)
Central Electro Chemical Research Institute
Date: 2018-06-11
In New Delhi, the Hindustan Times is reporting the Indian government has signed a memorandum of understanding for the transfer of technology developed by Central Electro Chemical Research Institute (CECRI), Karaikudi, Tamil Nadu, in partnership with Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and others for the country's first locally developed lithium-ion cells. Indian manufacturers at present rely on imports.

CSIR-CECRI has a demo facility in Chennai that manufactures prototypes of the cells. Indigenously manufacturing the batteries will also bring down the cost. The low cost could also help replace the hazardous lead-acid batteries that are currently in use in many applications.
