Stationary batteries for renewable energy storage

Neoen builds a new giant 500 MWp battery in Australia
Large-scale BESS would reduce the possibility of load shedding and blackout events in the state of New South Wales, especially given the multiple existing coal-fired power plants expected to go out of business within the next decade .

JANUARY 13, 2021 GWÉNAËLLE STANDING UP

Following the Victorian Big Battery, Neoen announced the construction of a new 500 MW / 1000 MWh Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) in Wallerawang, New South Wales. According to the French developer, the project, dubbed "Great Western Battery", would be the largest battery storage project in Australia. Neoen plans to connect its large battery to the TransGrid 330kV substation that previously served the Wallerawang coal-fired power plant, reusing the existing infrastructure.

The total cost is estimated to be around 300 to 400 million dollars (225 to 330 million euros). Construction of the Great Western Battery is expected to take about a year, which will require a maximum of 150-200 workers. If, as expected, construction can begin by 2022, the battery could be operational by 2023. “The large-scale BESS would reduce the possibility of load shedding and blackout events in the state, by particularly given the many existing coal-fired power plants which should reach the end of their activity in the next decade, ”indicates a study published on December 15, 2020.

Positioning itself to play a key role in the state government's plan to deploy 12 GWp of new renewable energy production capacity within the decade, Neoen asserts that the large battery is the key to unlocking future investments and adoption of renewable energies in the state and resolve the existing limitations of the grid.

Neoen currently operates the world's largest lithium-ion battery in Hornsdale, South Australia. Recently expanded, Hornsdale Power Reserve, also known as Tesla Big Battery, has a capacity of 150 MW / 194 MWh. The Great Western Battery should be at least three times its capacity. In 2020, the company won a contract to build a 300 MW / 450 MWh Victoria large battery on the outskirts of Geelong, as well as a 14-year contract with the Australian Capital Territory.

Trafigura invests nearly € 30 million in battery storage at the Belgian site of Nyrstar Balen
Trafigura Group, one of the world's leading independent commodity trading companies, has just announced the development of a first project for Nala Renewables, its new joint venture company with IFM Investors. The investment, of up to 30 million euros, will be made to develop one of the largest battery energy storage systems (“BESS”) in Belgium at Nyrstar's zinc smelter in Balen, says a statement of the group based in Switzerland.

JANUARY 13, 2021 JOËL SPAES

Construction of the Balen BESS project is expected to begin in the first half of 2021 after obtaining the authorizations, to be completed in 2022. Using lithium-ion battery technology, the 100 MWh battery project will be able to store 25 MW for more than four hours. The BESS system will ensure grid stability and balancing services for the Belgian grid, and help shift renewable energy production to periods of high energy demand.

There is now 1.4 GW of battery storage capacity in the US for networks.
Efficacy of 82%.
4 GW of projects should materialize in 2021.

Utility-Scale Batteries Return 82% Of Stored Electricity

By Charles Kennedy - Feb 12, 2021

The utility-scale batteries operating in the United States had an efficiency of retrieving the stored electricity at 82 percent in 2019, data from the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) showed on Friday.

Pumped-storage facilities — the largest energy storage resource in the US with 21.9 gigawatts (GW) of capacity accounting for 92 percent of total energy storage capacity as of November 2020 — had a round-trip efficiency of 79 percent, the EIA said.

Utility-scale battery capacity in the United States has been growing exponentially in recent years as it has been increasingly paired with soaring new wind and solar capacity installations. So battery capacity has become the second-largest source of electricity storage. As of November 20, 2020, utility-scale batteries had 1.4 GW of operational capacity. This year alone, 4 GW of battery capacity is scheduled to come online, according to EIA's Preliminary Electric Generator Inventory.

“The role of batteries and their capability to provide high levels of round-trip efficiency may become more important as batteries continue to be deployed and as the intermittent renewables share of the electricity mix grows,” the administration noted. By 2025, US battery storage capacity is expected to rise to 7.5 GW.
