WA players set to battle Elon Musk for SA battery project

Australian Vanadium has joined fellow Perth company Carnegie Clean Energy in hoping to help solve South Australia’s energy crisis, today committing to tender to build a battery storage facility in that state.

SA Premier Jay Weatherill yesterday announced a $150 million renewable technology fund, which he said would pay for the construction of a 100-megawatt battery storage facility.

Australian Vanadium subsidiary VSun Energy has a distribution agreement for vanadium flow batteries with Austrian battery manufacturer Gildemiester, and has previously installed capacity at a property near Busselton.
