This guide is intended to help all Australian property owners cut their energy costs and reduce their emissions, looking at a broad range of technologies — from solar PV and batteries to heat pumps, off-site renewables and demand management systems — and indicating which are...
This paper argues that evidence is growing that highly flexible electricity systems could deliver lower whole-system costs, especially given the dramatic projected falls in solar and wind power costs by 2030.
This occasional paper provides an overview of energy storage technologies already in Australia and on the horizon, and the opportunities for Australia to lead the world in these fields.
Hydro Tasmania’s Battery of the Nation initiative would double Tasmania’s existing flexible generation capacity. The iniative is a bundle of proposed projects that include redeveloping existing hydro-electric power stations, building new pumped hydro plants and expanding the role of Tasmania in the NEM using new...
The February 2018 electricity update reviews the performance of the South Australian 'big battery.' The audit shows that Australia’s energy system is in transition, regardless of the political turmoil the change is creating.
Australia's love affair with clean energy and battery storage is only just beginning, with the nation on the verge of an energy storage boom, as the cost of lithium-ion batteries rapidly drops. Prices have dropped by 80% since 2010, and are tipped to halve again...
This guide provides an illustrated overview of the options available for energy storage in buildings, including thermal and electrical energy storage. It discusses the attributes of these systems. It is aimed at designers, facilities managers and occupiers.
Case studies are included in order to...
The project examines the scientific, technological, economic and social aspects of the role that energy storage can play in Australia’s transition to a low-carbon economy to 2030, and beyond.
Household solar, batteries and smart inverters can improve the stability and quality of power supplied by the electricity grid, early results from a pioneering trial in regional homes across NSW and Victoria suggest.
The Networks Renewed study – led by the UTS Institute for...
