System security and reliabilityProject Energy Storage for Commercial Renewable Integration
This report sets out a business case for a utility scale Energy Storage Device.
The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) has part funded Phase 1 of a project known as the Energy Storage for Renewable Integration South Australia Project (ESCRI-SA, the Project) under their Emerging Renewables Program. The Project is examining the role of a non-hydro Energy Storage Device (ESD) within the South Australian transmission system specifically designed to leverage value from the energy market and through both ancillary and network services.
A key objective of the Project is to demonstrate that such storage adds value to renewable energy, with the ESD targeting additional services to improve its business case.
