There are more than 85 big batteries with a total capacity of 18,660 MW in the planning pipeline.
Mark Ludlow, Australian Financial Review, November 2021
Its research shows there are five utility-scale battery projects in operation in the NEM and 35 utility-scale battery projects in the pipeline. In Australia, the battery industry is predicted to be worth $7.4 billion by 2030.
Tony Boyd, Australian Financial Review, September 2021
A rapid, orderly transition to 100% renewable electricity is critical to Australia’s energy future, which is achievable in a sustainable, reliable and cost-effective way.
Shane Rattenbury, ACT Energy and Emissions Reduction Minister, August 2021
Energy storage will help make more efficient use of the network and will play an important role in accelerating our transition to a highly renewable electricity grid and low-carbon economy.
Rohan Leppert, The council’s environment portfolio chair, July 2021
Significant renewable energy investments, and well-progressed dispatchable generation projects, including gas plants, pumped hydro and battery storage, will all help replace retiring thermal plants. The new dispatchable capacity will also enable higher penetrations of low-cost solar and wind generation into the market in the coming years.
Daniel Westerman, CEO, Australian Energy Market Operator, August 2021
Based on the current trends AEMO expects that, if the power system is engineered appropriately, there could be up to 100% instantaneous penetration of renewables at certain times of the day throughout the year by 2025.

Informa Australia is delighted to announce the Australian Energy & Battery Storage Conference, held 23-24 March at the Swissotel Sydney. Re-join and reconnect with your colleagues, contacts and industry for this unique networking and shared learning opportunity.
The Australian Energy & Battery Storage Conference will focus on the latest development of large-scale batteries, pumped hydro projects & community batteries. The rapidly changing environment and technological advancements push forward the future goal of a successful 100% renewable energy transition. The surge in transmission investments also continues to ensure the opportunity to effectively improve long-term energy reliability. This exciting event allows the opportunity for greater transparency and effective collaboration across the sector.
Topics will include:
- Policy – new proposed changes to the electricity grid (NEM) and the impact new energy storage will play (including REZ’s)
- The latest advances in battery storage technology
- Investment considerations for the roll-out of energy storage in the NEM
- Case studies on the construction of new large-scale batteries (and pumped hydro)
- Case studies of the actual operation of batteries in the grid
- The transmission angle – how batteries (and pumped hydro projects) can be connected to the grid
