      Conergy to Build Large-Scale Solar-Plus-Battery Project in Australia

      Conergy plans to build a 10.8MWac solar PV plant combined with 1.4MW/5.3MWh of lithium-ion battery storage near Lakeland, Australia. The plant has garnered the interest of Melbourne-headquartered mining firm BHP Billiton, which is the largest mining firm in the world, as it considers solar-plus-storage applications for its own remote operations through a knowledge sharing steering committee. Similarly, Ergon Energy is looking to avoid network upgrade costs in Queensland through the technology combination. The Conergy plant will provide energy for more than 3,000 homes and will create 60 jobs during construction. Origin Energy is buying the power form the plant.
