DP Energy wins approval for Stage 2 of 1.1GW hybrid renewables park, which will offer most services of traditional fossil fuel power stations.
The biggest threat to Australia’s legacy coal fired generators is not the explosion of wind and solar farms, or even the settings of the country’s emissions policy: Right now, it’s the continued boom in rooftop solar.
Australia will likely source 86% of its electricity from wind and solar by 2050, based on economics only, and regardless of climate policy. It could get there a lot quicker with emissions targets, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance.
New program to design standards that will enable consumers to compare performance of household battery storage between different brands and manufacturers.
A new study led by chief scientist Alan Finkel has underlined Australia’s role as a leader in the household battery storage sector, and says Australia can, and should, be a leader of energy storage of all types.
As more and more wind and solar is added to the grid, the shape of their output is also changing, and in a way that should give confidence about a clean energy future based around a high level of variable renewable energy sources.
ARENA backs “green hydrogen” project in W.A. that will combine solar and battery storage and an electrolyser for a micro-grid trial.
ElectraNet proposes new link from S.A. that it says will unlock more low-cost renewable energy sources, reduce reliance on expensive gas, and help fill the gap caused by the retirement of more coal generators in NSW.
Proposed Tesla big battery in California will be more than 8 times bigger than the current world’s biggest in South Australia. And there’s more.
City of Sydney adds 500kWh Tesla battery to new solar council depot, both to make the depot self sufficient and as part of Transgrid demand management trial.
