Wallgrove Grid Battery

Wallgrove: NSW's first grid-scale battery

The Wallgrove Grid Battery is a 50MW/75MWh grid battery that uses Tesla Megapack technology to output power equivalent to about 125,000 solar panels. With funding support from the NSW Government and the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, this project is designed to test grid-scale synthetic inertia and fast frequency response capabilities to address projected inertia shortfalls in the electricity network.

It is structured using an innovative commercial arrangement with Iberdrola Australia, combining network support services and consumer outcomes in a single project.
