Australia’s biggest energy storage battery project

Hydro Tasmania has awarded Ecoult a contract to supply the largest battery-based renewable energy storage system in Australia. Oz-based Ecoult will be supplying a 3MW/1.6MWh storage system based on its lead-acid UltraBattery technology, which will have the capacity to power an entire island of over 1,700 inhabitants for up to 45 minutes.

The energy storage component is part of the King Island Renewable Energy Integration Project, which, it is hoped, will lower CO2 emissions by 95% through the use of sustainable clean energy sources, including bio-diesel.
