ACT Aiming for 100 pct Renewables, 250MW Battery Storage (Int'l.)
Australia
Date: 2021-04-19
In the Land Down Under, the Australia Capital Territory (ACT) Government reports it aims to add 250MW of battery storage within its boundaries, to help it achieve its 100 pct renewable energy and net zero emissions goals.

The first stage of the project, for which Act has earmarked $100 million, will begin with a "market sounding" pre-procurement process to understand how a large-scale battery can be incorporated in the territory. The storage capacity will be shared among a variously-sized assets at different locations and provide power to reduce pressure on the grid, reduce electric power prices and generate new revenue opportunities for the territory government.

The project may deliver several batteries with a variety of capacities through one or many organisations and may include a small number of large-scale batteries (50MW-plus), as well as a larger number of smaller, "precinct-scale" batteries. Batteries could be connected to the ACT's transmission or distribution network, located at government sites such as bus depots or co-located with large-scale renewable generation facilities, according to the release.

The new battery capacity will be additional to the storage included in the territory's renewable electricity reverse auction last year, where 200MW of new generation will flow from Neoen's Stage 1 Goyder South Wind Farm in South Australia and GPG's Stage 2 Berrybank Wind Farm in Victoria. Neoen and GPG will build large-scale batteries located in Canberra, with the Neoen battery expected to be capable of powering about 15,000 typical homes for an hour in the event of a blackout.

Neoen,Tesla
Date: 2020-11-06
Paris-headquartered Neoen SA reports it will partner with Tesla Inc. to install one of the world's largest lithium-ion batteries in Geelong, Victoria State, Australia after reaching a grid connection deal with the power market operator.

The 300-MW Victorian Big Battery using Tesla's Megapack technology will be double the size of Neoen's Hornsdale site in South Australia, which was the largest facility when it began operation in 2017. The new system will help modernize and stabilize the coal-dependent local grid, which is targeting 50 pct of its power to come from renewable sources by 2030. The new battery is expected to be operational by the end of 2021. (Source: Neoen, PR, 5 Nov., 2020) Contact: Neoen, www.neoen.com; Tesla Power Pack, www.tesla.com/en_CA/powerpack

Neoen Plans Massive Aussie Wind, Solar+Storage Project (Int'l.)
Neoen
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.
