Tesla Touts Microgrids, Solar Energy Storage for Greek islands (Int'l)
Tesla
Date: 2019-01-18
Tesla reports it has made a proposal to the Greek Ministry of Environment and Energy to modernize the electric grid of several remote Greek islands in the Mediterranean sea with microgrids, renewable energy and powerpack energy storage systems to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels.

In its proposal, Tesla cited the completion of a similar project on the island of Ta'u in American Samoa. In 2016, Tesla deployed a 1.4 MW solar array and a 6 MWh energy storage system with 60 Tesla Powerpacks. The company has also deployed similar systems in Samoa, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and others. See our July 27, 2018 edition for details of the Samoan project.

Tesla reportedly suggested a pilot project to demonstrate their microgrid system on the island of Limnos.

Aussie Tesla Battery Installation Delivers $40Mn Savings (Int'l)
Neoen
Date: 2019-01-04
In the Land Down Under, wind energy developer Neoen is reporting its recently installed Tesla Battery energy storage system at Hornsdale Power Reserve has delivered approximately $40 million in savings over the past year. According to Neoen, the operator of an adjacent wind farm, the battery installation is the largest lithium-ion battery energy storage system in the world.

The Tesla Powerpack system cost $66 million to build, which is a small number in comparison to the amount of funds saved over a mere 12 months. The Tesla system also eliminated the need for a 35 MW local Frequency Control Ancillary Service (FCAS); decreased the South Australian regulation FCAS price by 75 pct; and helped connect South Australia to the National Electricity Market.

Infigen Energy,Tesla
Date: 2018-08-20
In the Land Down Under, Infigen Energy reports its 278.5MW Lake Bonney wind facility will install a 25MW Tesla grid-scale battery energy storage system in South Australia. According to Infigen Energy, the energy storage capacity will play a crucial role in stabilizing the surrounding region's grid with its flexibility services.

Infigen has secured project funding agreements with the South Australian government and the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) worth around $38 (AUS) million. South Australia is home to the world's largest battery -- a 100MW system at the Hornsdale wind farm.

ConEdison, Tesla Partner on Powerpack Installations (Ind. Report)
Tesla,ConEdison,Orange and Rockland
Date: 2018-02-19
In the Big Apple, New York's largest electric utility, Con Edison, reports it has partnered with Tesla to propose a series of Powerpack energy storage installations in collaboration with Orange and Rockland (O&R), a Con Edison subsidiary.

The Project will develop and test methods of mitigating barriers to energy storage implementation. The demonstration project batteries will consist of a 4MW/8MWh portfolio of aggregated batteries located at individual battery sites behind-the-meter of commercial and industrial customers and co-located with distribution-connected remote solar projects. The battery installations will be developed, designed, installed, operated and maintained by Tesla.

The $5.6 million project is expected to pay for itself quickly by creating over $700,000 in value per year in the New York ISO energy, capacity and ancillary services markets.
