      Infigen Energy Invests in Tesla Big Battery Energy Storage System

      Wind energy company Infigen Energy plans to install a 52 MWh Tesla Powerpack battery energy storage system in South Australia. The battery system will be next to its 278 MW Lake Bonney Wind Farm near Mount Gambier. The Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) will cost around $38 million to build and install. ARENA and the South Australian government will each contribute funding of $5 million towards the project. Once built, BESS will be connected to the National Energy Market. It will also enable Infigen to firm up an extra 18 MW of renewable supply.

      International Space Station Gets A Battery Upgrade

      NASA astronauts have installed adapter plates and electrical connections necessary for three of six new lithium-ion batteries to be installed on the International Space Station. The 6.5 hour exercise was the first of two spacewalks planned to finalize the installation of the lithium-ion batteries, which will replace 12 of the space station’s nickel hydrogen (Ni-H2) energy storage units. The second spacewalk will occur on Friday, January 13.

    7. The Zinc-Polyiodide Redox Flow Battery

      The Zinc-Polyiodide Redox Flow Battery

      A new type of redox flow battery has an energy density approaching that of lithium-ion batteries used in portable electronic devices and some small electric cars. A new zinc-polyiodide redox flow battery developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and described in Nature Communications uses an electrolyte with more than double the energy density of the next best design; opening up possibilities of using flow batteries in applications such as vehicles in the future.
