Big batteries to narrow gap to 100% renewables

post-image

Australia is to fund eight big batteries with a combined 4.2 gigawatt hours of storage capacity in a new funding round designed to close the gap to 100 per cent renewable energy.

The $176 million of funding from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency focuses on advanced grid forming inverters which are capable of providing most, if not all, of the crucial grid services currently delivered by the big coal fired power stations expected to close over the coming decade.

This is such a good development - we are finally heading down the track of a serious renewable energy transition!

Hope we can fix up the national grid very soon?
