Grid Storage Systems: The panacea for electricity security?

Battery storage is attracting attention as a technology which could make variable renewable energy more dispatchable.  The South Australian, Victorian and Queensland Governments are procuring ground breaking battery storage installations and projects incorporating battery storage are being implemented by market suppliers and customers.  Meanwhile, construction has begun on Australia’s largest embedded, grid-connected solar and battery micro-grid to deliver power and water to the Department of Defence’s Garden Island facility in Western Australia.  But how well understood are the energy services that a grid battery can provide?  Join in this discussion with a company at the forefront of an Australian project nearing completion.
