The World’s Biggest Battery


Jay Weatherill kick started the world’s biggest battery last Friday but unfortunately a thunderstorm that coincided with the launch resulted in a blackout to properties in the vicinity of the battery.

The battery was completed on time as promised and the South Australian Premier claims it will bring reliability to the South Australian grid.

It has a specified capacity of 100 megawatts (MW) and can power 30,000 homes for an hour.

It is designed to be charged when prices are low and to release power into the grid when the price is high.

Mr Weatherill said at the launch that “the battery is an example of South Australia leading the world.”
