The Currawarra Solar PV Park – Battery Energy Storage System is an 88,000kW energy storage project located in Deniliquin, New South Wales, Australia. The rated storage capacity of the project is 44,000kWh.
The project was announced in 2017.
The Currawarra Solar PV Park – Battery Energy Storage System is being developed by RES Australia Pty. The project is owned by RES Australia Pty (100%), a subsidiary of Renewable Energy Systems.
The key applications of the project are frequency regulation, ramping, renewables capacity firming and renewable energy generation smoothing.
RES Australia Pty is the owner. RES Australia Pty is the developer.
The facility would provide network services including ‘energy smoothing’ and frequency control integration and improved reliability as well as energy arbitrage. ‘Energy arbitrage’ is the price mechanism allowing energy to be stored during periods of low demand and then discharged during periods of high demand.
