Can Tesla’s Mega Battery Deliver on Reliability in South Australia?

by Wood Mackenzie

On 1 December, Tesla commissioned the world's largest lithium-ion battery (Powerpack) in South Australia. The 100-MW, 129-MWh battery is paired with French renewable energy company Neoen's 315-MW wind farm at Hornsdale in Jamestown. The plant consists of 99 wind turbines. The battery complex is called Hornsdale Power Reserve.

While Tesla's Powerpack battery system may not completely insulate South Australia from future outages, the event is significant for power markets in Asia. Read this brief report to understand why.
