The Longwarry Energy Storage System is a 5,000kW energy storage project located in Longwarry, Victoria, Australia. The rated storage capacity of the project is 7,500kWh.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project will be commissioned in 2021.
The key application of the project is grid stability.
E22 Energy Storage Solutions is the technology provider for the project.
E22 Energy Storage Solutions is the system integrator.
The battery will provide AusNet with much-needed network services, as grid congestion will only get worse in the peak summer period. AusNet and E22 have a five-year deal, and the battery is set for completion in early 2021.
