ENGIE is working on a project to develop a Battery Energy Storage System next to its Dry Creek Power Station on Rumble Road, Dry Creek.
The proposed Dry Creek Battery project includes up to a 55MW / 110MWh battery-based energy storage system (BESS) that will help deliver more electricity grid stability for South Australia.
Once operational, the battery will have the capacity to store up to 110MWh of electricity generation, which is the equivalent to powering more than 8,000 average South Australian homes per day. The battery will be able to store unused electricity in times of low demand and send extra electricity into the grid at peak times, while ultimately reducing the cost of electricity to consumers.
The Dry Creek BESS will support the collection of energy from renewable sources including roof top solar and play a key role in increasing South Australia’s energy capacity and delivering further grid stability.
- Once operational, the battery will have the capacity to store up to 110MWh of electricity generation, which is enough to power more than 8,000 average South Australian homes for a two hour period, such as times of peak demand.
- With its proximity to Adelaide, the BESS will provide important services to the existing power system including capturing excess power from roof top solar and other resources, while supporting South Australia’s grid stability.
- It is expected that that BESS will be operational by end 2025.
- The proposed site is in an industrial area near existing network infrastructure, with no need for the development of new transmission lines.
