Australian utility AGL identifies second big battery site amid rapid energy storage scale-up

first_imgAustralian utility AGL identifies second big battery site amid rapid energy storage scale-up FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Energy Storage News:Australian utility AGL has furthered its plans to develop 850MW of large-scale battery storage across a number of sites in the country, announcing a new project in Victoria.Last week AGL said that it intends to build a project in South Australia of up to 250MW/1,000MWh, which would be one of the largest battery energy storage systems (BESS) in the world. The utility said today that it has begun development activities for a 200MW battery system in Victoria’s Latrobe Valley.AGL did not say in a press release what the likely capacity in megawatt-hour terms will be for the Victoria battery system, but did reveal that the system is planned for siting at the Loy Yang power station, which currently has 2,225MW of coal generation based there, as well as a coal mine that fuels it.The utility’s 850MW of targeted energy storage deployments will be located within Australia’s National Electricity Market wholesale market structure and should be added to AGL’s network by the 2024 financial year.By that time, AGL is targeting sourcing 34% of its electrical capacity from renewables and energy storage. Eventually, as with a number of major utilities in the US and several major countries, AGL wants to be responsible for net zero emissions by 2050.AGL CEO Brett Redman said the company is proud to be taking battery storage technology into the Latrobe Valley, which [he] described as a community that plays “such a pivotal role in Australia’s energy generation. The limiting factor for renewable technology has always been storage and we are taking control of these limitations by turning our attention to batteries. We are investing in our people, our communities and the technology and in doing so driving Australia’s energy transition responsibly,” Redman said.[Andy Colthorpe]More: Australian utility AGL reveals latest big step towards 850MW of battery storagelast_img read more

Nick Tropeano’s early exit dampens Angels’ victory over Tigers

Subscribe here.Tropeano (5-6) is one of nine Angels starting pitchers who have missed time with injuries this season. Matt Shoemaker, Garrett Richards and JC Ramirez have all spent more time on the DL than the Angels’ active roster, or will have by the end of the season. The Angels’ 56-58 record is largely a testament to time spent in the trainers’ room.Manager Mike Scioscia said Tropeano isn’t scheduled for an MRI exam on his shoulder. The pitcher said he would rest for two days, then try to go about his normal routine in preparation for his next scheduled start Sunday against the Oakland A’s.“I don’t think we’re going to assume it’s a DL stint or anything like that,” Tropeano said. “Right now it just felt stiff.”The announced crowd of 34,073 at Angel Stadium had not seen the Angels win at home since July 28. They had not won on a Monday since June 4.The score was tied 1-1 when Simmons’ seventh home run of the season, a two-run shot against Tigers starter Matt Boyd (6-2), gave the Angels the lead for good in the third inning. Young’s first home run of the season, a solo blast in the fifth inning, extended the lead to 4-1.

(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)ExpandANAHEIM — The Angels beat a poor Detroit Tigers baseball team Monday. Eric Young Jr. and Andrelton Simmons each hit home runs and made diving catches in the field. Light-hitting third baseman Kaleb Cowart hit a pair of doubles. Their 6-2 victory achieved what last week’s 1-5 road trip did not: it made the game look fun.The Angels’ joy, never unfettered, was confronted with a familiar villain. Starting pitcher Nick Tropeano faced one batter above the minimum for five innings, then was removed because of stiffness in his right shoulder.Officially, Tropeano missed 31 games this season with inflammation in the same shoulder. Yet even before he landed on the disabled list in June, Tropeano said he had not pitched at full health all season. Any recurrence of the injury would be discouraging; after Tropeano made arguably his best start in two months, he could scarcely concoct a more heartbreaking exit.“It was more precautionary,” Tropeano said, “to take me out now and play it by ear.” Other than a solo home run by Nicholas Castellanos, Tropeano did not allow a hit. The right-hander struck out four Detroit hitters while walking just one, and he needed only 62 pitches to get through five innings.Tropeano said he first felt tightness in his shoulder after the first inning. It was not until after the fifth inning, however, that he was asked to describe how he felt in the Angels’ dugout. Perhaps the radar gun provided a clue: Tropeano’s fastball topped out in the 92-93 mph range in each of his four starts after returning from the disabled list; Monday it never exceeded 91.“I just felt like my stuff wasn’t as effective because I felt tight,” Tropeano said. “When that’s the case, I’m coming back from (Tommy John surgery), so we’re kind of worried about the elbow, if you’re compensating, stuff like that.”Despite the injury, Tropeano dominated the Tigers’ lineup, lowering his earned-run average to 4.74. Detroit has lost four consecutive games to fall to 47-66.Noe Ramirez took over in the sixth inning, faced four batters, and did not record an out. The right-hander issued two walks and a single to load the bases for Jose Iglesias, who dumped a line drive a few feet in front of Young in center field.Iglesias settled for a single as James McCann scored Detroit’s second run. The bases were still loaded with nobody out when Scioscia summoned Cam Bedrosian from the bullpen.Bedrosian escaped the quagmire by striking out Castellanos with a 93-mph fastball down the middle, then getting Jeimer Candelario to hit into an inning-ending double play.“For him to get out of the inning with no more damage really set us up well,” Scioscia said of Bedrosian.Related Articles The Angels padded their lead with two runs in the seventh inning. Jose Briceño singled and went to third base on a double by Cowart. Young’s sacrifice fly allowed both runners to tag up and advance, driving in Briceño. Iglesias, the Tigers’ shortstop, dove to prevent a ground ball by David Fletcher from reaching the outfield, but he did not prevent Cowart from scoring the Angels’ sixth run.Hansel Robles and Justin Anderson combined to pitch the final three innings without allowing a run.Young and Simmons were teammates in Atlanta in 2015, then were reunited with the Angels last year. Sunday night they sat in the same row on the flight home from Cleveland. Their lockers sit side-by-side in the Angels’ clubhouse, too.The two men are close enough off the field that Simmons could tease Young about playing copycat on the field.“We feed off each other,” Young said.“He’s just trying to show off,” Simmons said, jokingly. “No, but his diving play was way better. His homer was a little farther than mine, where the big boys hit it.” Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield It’s Simba time!! @Andrelton launches a two-run homer to give the @Angels the lead pic.twitter.com/EQ87RDq0Pv— FOX Sports West (@FoxSportsWest) August 7, 2018 Welcome to the club 🔥 @EYJr adds to the @Angels lead with his first home run of the season! pic.twitter.com/m0GKyVHNx2— FOX Sports West (@FoxSportsWest) August 7, 2018 Not in Simba’s house!! @Andrelton does it again on defense 👀 pic.twitter.com/2S21DvxhvA— FOX Sports West (@FoxSportsWest) August 7, 2018last_img read more

Paul injured in Clippers’ win over Dallas

first_imgThen they found out that Paul, who had 19 points at halftime, will be out three to five weeks. Coach Doc Rivers said Paul could be out longer and will go to Los Angeles for evaluation while the Clippers head to San Antonio to face the defending Western Conference champion Spurs on Saturday night.“It changes for everybody,” said Darren Collison, who figures to start in Paul’s place and had a season-high 22 points in his first game against the Mavericks after playing one season in Dallas. “Everybody’s got to step up and play big. But we’ll be fine.”Dirk Nowitzki was a game-time decision with a sprained left ankle but hit six of his first seven shots and had 14 points at halftime on his way to 24 for the Mavericks, who were up 13 in the first half and didn’t trail until the third quarter.After Shawn Marion put the Mavericks up 110-103, Griffin had an alley-oop dunk on an assist from Jordan, and Jordan followed with a three-point play. DALLAS >> DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin found a way to win without Chris Paul.The big men for the Clippers are going to have to keep it up because their star guard will be out at least a few weeks.Jordan scored a career-high 25 points to match Griffin, and the Clippers rallied to beat the Dallas Mavericks 119-112 Friday night after losing Paul when he separated his right, shooting shoulder.Jordan and Griffin combined for 10 points on a 16-2 game-closing run to wipe out a 110-103 deficit in the final 4 minutes. Jordan was 11 of 14 from the field and had 18 rebounds, while Griffin added 15 boards. Nowitzki broke a 110-all tie with a jumper, but Griffin sent the Clippers back in front for good on a three-point play. He was 11 of 13 on free throws.“They’ve got those two big guys and I know it’s a load, but we’ve got to do a better job,” said Dallas guard Monta Ellis, who had 13 points and nine assists. “That was a tough one.”The Mavericks missed six of their last seven shots and had two late turnovers, including one when Ellis dribbled off himself with Jordan guarding him and the Clippers up 115-112.“As hard as we worked to get the lead back up to seven in the fourth, we just gave it up too easy,” Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said. “Defensively, they went right through us, and offensively, without getting stops, the shots get harder.”With the Clippers leading by two, Paul was tripped by Ellis while dribbling around a screen. He rolled over and stayed on the floor holding his shoulder while being attended to by trainers. Paul stayed down for about a minute before going to the locker room with 6:43 remaining in the third quarter.“I don’t think you could find one guy in the league, maybe LeBron or whoever, but besides that there’s no one guy who can make up with what Chris brings,” said backcourt mate Jamal Crawford, who had 15 points and a jumper that pulled the Clippers even at 110. “For us we have to lean on each other.”The Mavericks had a season high for points in a half but led just 70-67 at the break. Paul made his first five shots — all from 3-point range — before a miss from beyond the arc in the final seconds of the first half. Jordan had three of the Clippers’ five dunks in the first half, but Los Angeles kept giving up easy slams to a Dallas team that doesn’t make a habit of them. Marion, who finished with 20 points, had two of the Mavericks’ five first-half dunks. center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
