The 100MW / 200MWh Riverina Energy Storage System, currently in development, will be located adjacent to TransGrid’s Darlington Point Substation in the Murrumbidgee Shire, South West NSW.
Developed by Edify, the lithium-ion battery will serve to add more flexible dispatchable capacity to the NSW market and will complement the significant presence of renewable generation in the region.
The project has been developed to meet the requirements of Shell Energy and the NSW Government, with Shell Energy signing a long-term services agreement to access operational rights to a 60MW / 120MWh partition of the battery.
Critical to achieving Australia’s carbon emission reduction targets is the ability to rapidly increase the supply of renewable and secure energy available to government, businesses and consumers. The delivery of the Riverina Energy Storage System will help provide innovative solutions to our complex energy challenges.
