The recommended battery is prepared to be constructed in proximity to France-based Neoen's (EPA: NEOEN) Coleambally solar farm in Riverina area, a declaring with the state preparation commission shows.

The project will be on screen until February 10, 2023.

To be sited within the Murrumbidgee Shire Council, the Coleambally battery will offer four hours of storage capacity to the close-by 150-MW photovoltaic (PV) farm, which was brought online in 2018. The lithium-ion facility will certainly keep electrical energy that will be straight provided to the national power grid during durations of low renewables output.

The setup will certainly contain 40 battery system blocks with a power conversion system (PCS) each.

Risen Energy Australia anticipates the project's construction and commissioning phase to take in between eight as well as ten months, according to the project's ecological effect statement (EIS).

In December, another battery project by Risen Energy in New South Wales, the 200 MW/400 MWh Bungama, emerged as among the winners in a tender to award AUD 176 million (USD 123.3 m/EUR 113.3 m) in give funding to energy storage plans. The competitive round was held by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA).
