Carnegie, Samsung, Lendlease join forces in battery response
- Business & Finance
Carnegie Clean Energy has submitted a response to the Government of South Australia’s Expression of Interest regarding the provision of utility scale battery energy storage solutions into the South Australia electricity network.
Carnegie, through its 100% owned subsidiary Energy Made Clean, is currently the largest Australian designer and integrator of utility scale battery storage solutions.
For this opportunity, Carnegie has teamed with Samsung SDI and Lendlease Services, which will be core to the delivery of this project, via its Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) joint venture with Energy Made Clean.
Carnegie’s consortium also includes financial, project and energy retailing partners and preferred locations for a range of different energy storage blocks across the South Australian electricity network.
Carnegie’s Managing Director, Dr Michael Ottaviano, said: “As renewable energy penetration inevitably increases across the country, the need for utility scale energy storage will grow in lockstep. Carnegie’s approach is focused on finding economical ways of delivering this emerging product at strategic locations where it can be of most benefit. The deployment of utility scale battery systems creates an opportunity for South Australia and Australia to develop a new local industry and export this capability throughout our region.”
