The Neoen Crystal Brook Hydrogen Superhub – Battery Energy Storage System is a 130,000kW energy storage project located in Crystal Brook, South Australia, Australia. The rated storage capacity of the project is 400,000kWh.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2018 and will be commissioned in 2021.
The Neoen Crystal Brook Hydrogen Superhub – Battery Energy Storage System is being developed by Neoen Australia Pty. The project is owned by Neoen Australia Pty (100%), a subsidiary of Neoen.
The key applications of the project are renewables capacity firming and renewables energy time shift.
Neoen Australia Pty is the owner. Neoen Australia Pty is the developer.
The facility will produce 400 MW of power per day and up to 20,000 kilograms of hydrogen. It would include 150 MW of solar, 150 MW of wind, as well as up to a 50 MW hydrogen plant along with up to 400 MWh of battery storage, most likely with Tesla. South Australia will provide a $1 million grant to help Neoen complete its feasibility study for the Hydrogen Superhub, and will later provide a further $4 million grant, and a $20 million loan if the $600 million project gets the nod at planning application stage.
