ATA Tas South meeting - CONSORT Bruny Island Battery Trial ProjectApril 3, 2017 at 6:00 pm
When: Monday 3 April 2017, 7:00pm for 7.15 pm
Where: The Duke of Welllington Hotel, 192 Macquarie Street, Hobart
Presentation: Our speaker will be Derek Jones from TasNetworks who will be speaking on the CONSORT Bruny Island Battery Trial Project.
The CONSORT Bruny Island Battery Trial is an ARENA-funded research project that will address how batteries can be used by householders to manage their energy while assisting in the management of current network constraints. During the trial, approximately 40 battery storage systems will be installed in homes on Bruny Island.
The batteries will include groundbreaking energy management software that allows homeowners to sell their power back to the grid. This technology will help actively keep the network within voltage and capacity limits, reducing the reliance on diesel generation during peak season, enabling battery owners and networks to work together to maximise the value of solar energy.
