Aussie renewable energy developer ACE Power has secured grid-connection agreements with the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) for two battery energy storage systems (BESS) in Victoria and Queensland totalling 303 MW.

The company said on Wednesday it has received approval letters for the 103-MW Kerang battery in Victoria, and the 200-MW Yabulu battery, to be installed north of Townsville, Queensland. Both facilities will connect to the transmission network directly through existing substations at the two sites.

“These are among the earliest approvals nationwide for BESS to operate in grid forming mode from the date of commissioning,” said Ace Power’s senior development manager & BESS lead, Shane Humphreys.

As the projects are “significantly de-risked” now, Ace Power intends to begin construction works by the second quarter of this year.

New South Wales-based Ace Power owns an over 6-GWp pipeline of wind, solar and energy storage projects across its home country, of which 1.2 GWp are battery schemes.
