A new grid-scale battery energy storage system has entered into service in Australia to bolster power grid security across five of the country’s six states.

The 30-megawatt/8-megawatt-hour lithium-ion BESS in South Australia is owned and developed by transmission provider Electranet— and is adjacent to the company’s Dalrymple substation.

The ‘ESCRI’ (Energy Storage for Commercial Renewable Integration) BESS comprises Samsung rechargeable batteries integrated via invertors, controller and transformers from power company ABB. The system has a 12-year design lifetime.
