The Koorangie Energy Storage System (KESS) is located in North West Victoria, near the town of Kerang.
Currently in the development phase, the new lithium-ion battery will be connected to AusNet’s 220kV transmission network and provide system strength to the Murray River Renewable Energy Zone (REZ).
Edify has been awarded a System Support Agreement with the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) to provide 125 megawatts (MW) of services to strengthen the power system and increase the potential for generation in the Murray River region. The objective for KESS is to increase the renewable hosting capacity of the Murray River REZ by up to 300MW, through the provision of system strength to improve network stability.
Edify has partnered with Sosteneo, a specialist infrastructure investor, to deliver the $400m Koorangie Energy Storage System.
The battery is supported by a 15-year term offtake agreement with Shell Energy for the full 185MW / 370MWh;
KESS is on the traditional land of the Barapa Barapa, Wamba Wamba and Yorta Yorta people, near the town of Kerang. Edify acknowledges the traditional custodians of this land, whose rich culture is deeply connected to the rivers, lagoons, creeks, and wetlands of their nation.
KESS will commence operations in 2025 with a contracted service term with AEMO of 20 years.
