DEWA Solar Park Testing Tesla Battery Energy Storage (Int'l.)
DEWA, Tesla
Date: 2021-10-04
In the UAE, the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) reports it is piloting a 1.21MW/8.61MWh energy storage system using Tesla lithium-ion batteries at the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, the world's largest renewable energy project, in Dubai. The project is DEWA's second battery pilot at Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park .

The pilot is intended to test how energy storage can be used to diversify the utility's energy mix at a time when calls for the decarbonisation of the energy sector are increasing. By using energy storage, utilities are able to expand their portfolio of renewables and thereby move away from fossil-fueled energy generation, the release notes.

Tesla Battery Powerwall Boss Talks Carbon Tax (Notable Quote)
Elon Musk
Date: 2021-04-30
"I talked to the Biden administration, and they were like 'Well, this seems too politically difficult' and I was like, 'Well, this is obviously a thing that should happen', and by the way, SpaceX would be paying a carbon tax too. So I'm like, you know, I'm like, I think we should pay it too. It's not like we shouldn't have carbon generating things. It's just that there's got to be a price on this stuff.

"If we just put a price on carbon emissions, the market will react in a sensible way. But because we don]t have a price on it, it is behaving badly. It's either we have sustainable energy or civilization collapses. And so if civilization doesn't collapse we will have sustainable energy, it's just a question of how soon does that happen. Sooner is better." -- Elon Musk, Feb., 2021)

Tesla to Install Another Giant Battery in Australia (Int'l.)
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

WCSB Plans Alberta Battery Energy Storage Projects (Ind. Report)
WCSB
Date: 2020-10-28
On the Canadian prairies, Calgary-headquartered privately-held electric power generation company WCSB Power reports it has agreed to acquire and build Canada's largest battery energy storage system through three 20 MW projects in Alberta.

For the project, WCSB has procured three Tesla Megapack Batteries, the first of which will be connected to the grid in Rycroft where it will store and distribute renewable energy as needed. The Megapack can also be used as a microgrid if disconnected from the main power grid. In addition to the Rycrft installation, WCSB plans to install 20 MW Megapack's in Grande Prairie and Buffalo Creek, both of which are expected to be completed in 2021.

Red Bluff Considers Tesla Battery Backup (Ind. Report)
Tesla
Date: 2020-08-05
In the Golden State, the Red Bluff City Council is reportedly considering allowing Tesla to install battery banks at the Red Bluff Waste Water Treatment Plant that could save the city just over $600,000 over 10 years in electricity costs.

Tesla's proposal would install a 1,624 kWh battery at the wastewater treatment plant at no cost to the city. This battery would have an average duration of 4.5 hours with a fully charged period of 9 hours in the case of a power outage. The project would qualify for California Public Utilities Commission Equity Resilience Self-Generation Incentive Program rebates for installing energy storage technology for both residential and non-residential facilities.
