Description (excerpt):

As large scale battery technology and economies of scale continue to improve, many industrial utilities are investigating the use of battery technology as the basis for Grid Energy Storage Systems (GESS). Based in Victoria, Australia, AusNet Services, the state’s largest energy delivery service owning and operating approximately $11 billion of electricity and gas distribution assets that connect into more than 1.3 million Victorian homes and businesses, began investigating GESS in 2013. AusNet Services chose to trial the technology to explore the ability to manage peak demand with the potential to defer investment in network upgrades.
