“The Wallgrove battery will bring the strength and stability of the power supply system to the grid in this state.” TransGrid manages the resilience of its grid through a structured approach to risk assessment. For network security, bushfire and reliability, this involves the use of formal security assessments. They shall identify credible hazards, verify and implement all appropriate good practice controls and monitor implementation and effectiveness through continuous monitoring and control. The key to implementing these controls is the ISO 55001 certified asset management system. Emerging future risks, such as. B a possible change in extreme weather events, will be assessed as part of the development of the longer-term strategy. In addition, TransGrid provides a business continuity management framework to assess and control the risks of broader downtime, IT system failure, and other threats. TransGrid`s grid connects NSW to Queensland and Victoria and forms the backbone of the NEM. TransGrid will manage and pay for battery maintenance on the Wallgrove grid. The 50 MW battery is capable of producing 75 MW and, in accordance with the agreement, Infigen will manage the battery system for a period of 10 years after commissioning. Infigen, a subsidiary of Iberdrola, has signed an agreement with TransGrid for the operation of the 50 MW wallgrove grid battery in New South Wales, Australia. TransGrid`s investment in the battery project is supported by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) as part of ARENA`s adventitious research programme and the New South Wales Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE). Iberdrola recently launched construction of a hybrid solar wind project with a total capacity of 317 MW in Port Augusta, Southern Australia.

Ormat completes the acquisition of an energy storage facility in Texas, Usa Infigen already has a 25 MW battery located in the Lake Bonney wind farm in Virginia. In 2019, TransGrid looked at a number of innovation initiatives, including the use of Smart Wires technology, batteries and drones. Doosan builds 100 MW energy storage system in Australia Thanks to battery operation, Infigen is expected to expand its backup portfolio and significantly increase its capacity for renewable energy. As the operator of the battery system, Infigen will have control of the shipment through the system and will receive all spot market revenues related to its operation….
