    3. Study Suggests Australia's Largest Battery Storage Array Could Complement 91 MW Wind Farm

      Study Suggests Australia's Largest Battery Storage Array Could Complement 91 MW Wind Farm

      A ground-breaking study involving leading utilities and the Australian Renewable Energy Agency has suggested that Australia’s largest battery storage array could be installed at a South Australian wind farm. The study – Energy Storage for Commercial Renewable Integration in South Australia (ESCRI-SA) – looks at a range of possibilities for non-hydro storage in South Australia and concludes that a 10MW, 20MWh lithium-ion battery storage facility next to the 91MW Wattle Valley wind farm on the Yorke Peninsula is the best option.

      LG Chem Expands Footprint into Australian Residential Solar Storage Market Company Poised for Five-fold Growth in 2016

       SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, 24 March 2016 – LG Chem, Ltd., one of the world’s leading manufacturers of lithium-ion batteries has announced its plans to expand its footprint into the Australian residential solar storage market. With its expertise and legacy in the IT and Automotive battery industry, LG Chem has more recently established itself as a clear leader in the energy solar storage (ESS) market today. LG Chem entered the Australian residential storage market in July 2015, with the RESU6.4EX. The product has the highest energy density in the world, which means it is the smallest in volume compared to the amount of energy it can deliver. Its quality has already been proven in Germany and Japan - the two markets where LG Chem has seen the most uptake of its residential storage systems to date. The company has also seen exponential traction for the RESU6.4EX in Australia more recently.

    11. Cheaper Battery Technology for Solar Storage

      Cheaper Battery Technology for Solar Storage

      Researchers at WMG, University of Warwick have formed a new research partnership with battery technology innovators Faradion, and smart energy storage specialists Moixa Technology, to develop sodium-ion cells as a significantly lower cost alternative to lithium-ion batteries for solar energy storage. This collaboration is being part funded by Innovate UK, the UK's innovation agency.   A significant proportion of the cost of current solar energy storage systems comes from the commonly used lithium-ion battery. However by using highly abundant sodium salts rather than lithium, Sodium-ion cells are anticipated to be 30% cheaper to produce. This makes solar storage more accessible and opening up the possibility of domestic renewable energy storage to a greater number of households and businesses worldwide. Developments in this area could lead to a CO2 reduction of 500,000 tonnes each year.
