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
