Vena Energy Australia will build, own and maintain the BESS while energy retailer AGL will have full operational dispatch rights under a 15-year agreement between the two companies.
Microgrids have strong credentials when it comes to minimising the risks of supply loss related to natural disasters – including bushfires.
All of the bumps and hiccups that accompany the integration of large amounts of renewable energy into the grid have caused PPA buyers to pause for breath.
The program will bring about 20MW of demand-side generation capacity into the NEM over the three-year trial.
The new installation standards will have a dramatic impact on Australia’s home battery market, writes James Sturch.
For solar systems up to 100kW, 2.13GW of capacity was added in 2019 … more than twice the volume of 2017 and three times the 2016 result.
Storage and electric vehicles may be slow to take off but the CSIRO is looking far ahead to understand how the technologies can be best absorbed into daily life, Dr Christopher Munnings tells EcoGeneration.
Australia’s renewable energy market is set for another record year in 2020 as Rystad Energy expects utility wind and solar PV projects totalling 3.6GW to complete commissioning, up from 2.6GW in 2019.
The inverter giant is preparing itself for an onslaught of storage.
…but a slowing in investment in 2019 should not come as too much of a surprise.
A sharp fall in cost and a switch to PERC technology has transformed the economics for developers of large-scale solar projects, writes David Dixon.
A string of billion-dollar deals off coasts of mainland China and Taiwan, and in British, French and Dutch waters, made 2019 an all-time high for offshore wind.
One of the world’s largest PV power plant operators, China’s HHDC, is pushing the R&D dial so that hybrid clean energy solutions can be understood and actioned.
The new battery standard requires a thorough risk assessment process. The CEC’s James Patterson explains why this is important and what installers must do to comply with the standard.
Few or many? Big or little? When it comes to reaping the benefits batteries can bring to all energy users, it matters a lot how they are sized and deployed, writes Michael Lewis.
EnviroGroup managing director Mick Harris has seen solar grow fast and strong since he installed his first system in 1980.
The 2010s saw the renewable energy industry come of age, but the next decade promises to be even better, writes Clean Energy Council chief executive Kane Thornton.
As investment in renewables trends sideways in its home market Chinese power giant TBEA is continuing its search for opportunities around the world.
In addition to end-of-life issues, the funding round will also aim to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of solar PV.
The CEC has backed AEMO’s draft Integrated System Plan as a clear signal of encouragement for investment in clean energy.
A web developer focused on the solar industry shares some tips about how to stand out in a crowded market.
Very big solar systems come with many more challenges than the residential variety, and business in the commercial and industrial PV world is competitive. Australia’s two largest C&I solar companies take EcoGeneration through the ins and outs.
The clean energy sector is moving so fast it’s easy to forget how far we’ve come. Lacour Energy director Mark Rayner looks back at the past two decades in wonder.
The CSIRO is on a mission to bring together industry, government and other research organisations to fast-track emerging hydrogen technologies.
