The Inverleigh Hybrid Project – Battery Energy Storage System is a 12,000kW energy storage project located in Winchelsea, Victoria, Australia.

The project was announced in 2016.

Description

The key applications of the project are reliability, back up power and grid support services.

Additional information

The hybrid project has been redesigned for up to 16 wind turbine generators with an indicative capacity of 4.8 MW, co-located solar generation and battery storage. Subject to final turbine selection, solar and battery storage sizing, the installed capacity is expected to be up to 76.8 MW of wind, 16-22 MW of solar and approximately 12 MW of battery storage which is expandable giving an indicative total installed capacity of 110.8 MW.

Methodology

All publicly-announced energy storage projects included in this analysis are drawn from GlobalData ’s Power IC. The information regarding the projects are sourced through secondary information sources such as country specific power players, company news and reports, statistical organisations, regulatory body, government planning reports and their publications and is further validated through primary from various stakeholders such as power utility companies, consultants, energy associations of respective countries, government bodies and professionals from leading players in the power sector.
