Adelaide City Council works depot in Thebarton one of four buildings included in ZEN Energy’s $1 million battery storage project

Ecogeneration have published an article announcing that Adelaide City Council works depot in Thebarton is one of four high-profile Adelaide CBD buildings part of ZEN Energy’s $1 million battery storage project. The project’s aim is demonstrating real-time optimisation and monetisation of battery storage in the NEM by connecting the buildings to 513kWh of behind-the-meter storage.

Some key points…

Why was this article particularly of interest to us? As explained on our site here, we are working with the Energy Storage Council to develop an Energy Storage Register.

The Energy Storage Register is being developed to assist with four key challenges (plus a few ancillary challenges) with the growing adoption of battery storage technology into Australia’s electricity system.

How has this installation been registered? The storage industry envisages that installations like this will be registered in the Energy Storage Register, with access to this data restricted under Privacy Provisions.

With the information provided in the original Ecogeneration article, we have been able to commence the process for registering this particular installation, with the Energy Storage Register generating the unique registration code listed in the Storage Registration Widget embedded at the bottom of this article.

What are next steps, in fleshing out the registration record? The registration code (below) can be used to link more detailed information that can be supplied by others who have more detailed knowledge of this particular installation.

These stakeholders include:

  • The building owner (Adelaide City Council);
  • The storage manufacturer (ZEN Energy);
  • The retailer (not mentioned in the article);
  • The storage installer (not mentioned in the article);
  • The local network company (SA Power Networks, being South Australia).

To enter more data you may have with respect to this particular installation, please use the form embedded below. The data entry form embedded here (and also elsewhere) can be used.

Adding data with respect to another installation? To submit data with respect to another installation, please use the data entry form that is to be embedded here (and also elsewhere across the web).
