We have developed a Learning Hub to support local schools with curriculum-linked content about electricity and renewable energy.
What Can a Big Battery Do?
Like a Swiss army knife, a big battery can do many things.
Case study: SA Big Battery
The fast ramping capability of the Tesla Powerpacks used at the Hornsdale Power Reserve (HPR) allows the facility to dispatch large amounts of power quickly and reliably. This means it can support the South Australian electricity grid and deliver major cost savings by providing frequency control and short-term network security services.
In 2019, HPR reduced costs in the National Electricity Market by $116M through the provision of Contingency and Regulation Frequency Control Ancillary Services.
