The Heron Island Energy Storage Project, Australia
Australia has a sparse population, peaky demand profile, and extensive untapped renewable energy resources. Its energy sector understands that continuing on the path of traditional power generation and system augmentation is becoming ever-more expensive. The situation is right for the broad-scale adoption of alternatives such as Vanadium Flow Battery Energy Storage. Under this background, among demonstration projects in Australia,Heron Island Energy Storage Project was launched and entered into operation in 2019.
