    Large-scale battery systems in Australia met or exceeded expectations over 12 months of operation

    Reports into the performance of two large-scale battery energy storage systems (BESS) in the Australian state of Victoria have been published, showing that both performed as expected, or better, in 12 months of operation. The Gannawarra Energy Storage System (25MW/50MWh), saw a 50MWac solar farm retrofitted with a battery storage system, while the Ballarat Battery Energy Storage System (30MW/30MWh) was the first standalone battery-based energy storage system to be connected directly to the transmission network in front-of-the-meter (FTM).
