Forum: Battery Storage and Grid Integration Program Webinar
Speaker: Cameron Potter, Manager, Strategic Market Analysis, Battery of the Nation, Hydro Tasmania
Location: Zoom link

No RSVP necessary.
By the late 2020s, wind and solar generators are expected to supply nearly half of our grid’s total energy consumption and at times, this could be as high as 75 per cent. Deep (long duration) storages, and the flexibility they bring, are an effective solution to help balance the energy mix, increasing the reliability, security and affordability of Australia’s grid.
Hydro Tasmania will take a close look at the role and value of long-duration storage, in particular how deeper storages can help manage future forecasting uncertainty and help meet emerging grid challenges like solar cycle balancing and wind droughts. The presentation will also share insights on the forces and factors influencing the future electricity market design, and look at how Battery of the Nation can be a part of Australia’s least-cost future energy system.
