Battery storage combined with low carbon power generation is the solution to ‘black swan events’ says RES and Lloyd’s Register
Technology and innovation raises the game on how battery storage can be part of the world’s future energy generation mix to overcome electrical outages caused by severe storms.
“Operators are faced with a huge challenge to protect energy generation supply and demand in extreme weather conditions,” says Jeremy Moon, Head of Technical at RES in Australia. “We understand this requires investment long term and the adoption of new technology and solutions that enable sustainable energy provision now and in the future.”
Demand for energy storage is expected to increase after the entire state of South Australia lost power in September. The blackout was a widespread power outage across South Australia that occurred as a result of storm damage to the state’s electricity transmission infrastructure. ….
