Queensland Seeking Large Battery Storage System, Tesla A Front Runner
Neoen’s latest energy storage project hinted for Queensland could enable Tesla to raise the bar for the biggest energy storage after its 100 MW/129 MWh in South Australia.
There is no official announcement besides mention that Neoen’s Kaban Green Power Hub, 80 km (50 miles) southwest of Cairns in Queensland, needs to get big ESS for its wind farm.
Garth Heron, Neoen’s head of wind development for Australia said:
“We are looking to do a very large battery as there is a lot of need for electricity storage up in Queensland.”
Neoen already contracted Tesla for a second smaller project, so the new one in Queensland would be its third with Tesla.
Recently, Hyundai Heavy Industries’ Electric Systems Division began 150 MW ESS project in South Korea (with undisclosed capacity), which means that the Tesla 100 MW/129 MWh record is threatened.
