    GE’s Largest Battery Deal Yet Will Support a 200MW Australian Solar Plant

    GE won its biggest grid battery deal so far, to supply a solar plant in South Australia. The 200-megawatt Solar River plant will be coupled with a 100-megawatt/300-megawatt-hour GE Reservoir grid storage system. Solar River could start generating power as early as 2021. This battery will outrank South Australia's Hornsdale Power Reserve, the Tesla-supplied system that currently holds the title for world's largest. Like that battery, it will provide fast-reacting capacity for a state grid dealing with rapid renewables growth and baseload coal retirement. But the GE system will use its longer energy duration to turn solar power into a dispatchable resource.
