Maoneng has been granted development approval for its proposed 240MWp/480MWh battery energy storage system (BESS) in Victoria, Australia, which in megawatt-hour terms will be the country’s biggest project of its type so far.
The start of work on a hybrid renewable energy project combining large-scale wind power, solar PV and energy storage, marks “an important moment in South Australia’s clean energy transition,” the state’s energy minister has said.
Battery storage is begin assessed as a means to maximise the value of solar PV in Vietnam, with asset management group Dragon Capital having hired consultancy AqualisBraemar LOC Group (ABL Group) to conduct feasibility studies.
Gravity-based energy storage technology company Energy Vault has formed a strategic partnership with non-ferrous metals smelting and refinery company Korea Zinc, including a US$50 million investment commitment.
Neoen has started full commercial operations at its Bulgana Green Power Hub in the state of Victoria, Australia, which includes a 20MW / 34MWh battery energy storage system (BESS) paired with a 204MW wind farm.
