Off-grid suburb a ‘perfect storm’ for energy giants – via Sydney Morning Herald

Australian energy companies are facing a “perfect storm” as renewable alternatives are hastening the move to off-grid electricity.

RedFlow’s Ausgrid Trial Features in RenewEconomy Article

“… The full results of the suburban battery storage program, which used batteries from Australian developer RedFlow about the size of a small fridge, have not been released.

But Myors said the program showed that the technology was reliable and customer acceptance was good.   One of the key challenges was making sure that the storage was able to dispatch for the entire peak period. “Peak lasts for a certain number of hours. You don’t want battery to run out of puff, because you will the lose benefit for the network …”
