Tesla will adult a diversion in a renewable appetite storage marketplace with a largest lithium-ion battery storage trickery in a world, to be built for Australia’s Hornsdale Wind Farm, with a execution date of Dec 1, 2017. The trickery will use Tesla’s blurb battery storage Powerpack modules to broach a ability of 100 MW/129 MWh, that will store appetite generated from a farm’s turbines during rise era hours, and make it accessible consistently around a day when a grid needs it.
This complement will be means to appetite around 30,000 homes during max capacity, that Tesla says is homogeneous to how many were but appetite during a charge that caused a state-wide trance in South Australia in 2016. The genuine goal, however, is to assistance stabilise a South Australian electric appetite grid, by determining appetite smoothness according to rise demand. Tesla adds that a Powerwall home battery storage inclination are also being commissioned for residential business in a country, that can serve assist with grid stabilization.
Tesla has already built a large-scale appetite storage trickery for a Hawaiian island of Kauai, and during a system’s opening Tesla co-founder and CTO JB Straubel explained to me that Powerpack-based systems had intensity for applications opposite renewable appetite era methods, over only solar. This wind-based installation, total with a scale, is another vigilance to a universe that Tesla’s appetite offerings can fit a operation of needs.
“Battery storage is a destiny of a inhabitant appetite market, and a eyes of a universe will be following a care in this space,” South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill wrote in a matter supposing around email.
