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 Touts Energy Storage, Rooftop Solar Growth (Ind. Report)
Date: 2021-04-28
In an earnings call, Tesla reported its energy storage deployments grew 71 pct year-over-year in Q1, 2021, largely due to "the popularity of its Powerwall product." Tesla deployed 260 MWh of storage in Q1 of 2020 and 1,584 MWh in Q4, dropping to 445 MWh in Q1, this year.

Tesla also noted rooftop solar deployments climbed to 92 MW in Q1, its strongest quarter in 2.5 years. Solar roof deployments grew 9x compared to the same period last year. The growth curve slowed, however, from the fourth quarter of 2020 when the company installed 86 MW. (Source: Tesla, PR,27 Apr., 2021) Contact: Tesla, Tesla Power Pack,; Tesla Solar,

Nofar Energy Inks Tesla Storage Systems Agreement (Ind. Report)
Nofar Energy, Tesla
Date: 2021-03-19
Tel Aviv, Israel-based renewable energy developer Nofar Energy is reporting a $30 million supply framework agreement with Elon Musk's Tesla to purchase energy storage systems with a capacity of at least 100 MW of power.

Nofar Energy will incorporate the Tesla storage systems into solar facilities with a 150-MW capacity that can be connected to the Israeli national power grid by the end of 2023.

Together with its existing facilities, the move will increase Nofar's accumulated capacity of 1,000 MW. (Source: Nofar Energy, PR, Website, 17 Mar., 2021) Contact: Tesla, Tesla Power Pack,; Nofar Energy, Ofer Yannay, Chairman, 08-3750060, Fax - 08-3750061,,

Tesla to Install Another Giant Battery in Australia (Int'l.)
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,; Tesla Power Pack,

WCSB Plans Alberta Battery Energy Storage Projects (Ind. Report)
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.
