    Can the Electrical pinky ring gang elaborate on whether this is a big deal or not? @The Cosworth @Xtrema

    During its tests on Tuesday, for example, the upgraded Hornsdale battery performed a rapid 270MW flip by charging at 120MW and discharging at 150MW

    Would depend what they mean by Rapid and the grid strength it was attached to. Although the technology itself is pretty impressive. Would be able to backup a very large system quickly or be able to absorb a huge spike in unexpected renewable; big gush of wind for example or when a cloud passes over a large solar array.

    Battery will allow balancing out the green and red and give a more steady pool price.

    But I not sure how the economics to investing in a battery farm would work. In theory, the is $10/MW differential in price per day. If you charges at the lowest pool and release in the highest, that's your revenue. So say you can cycle 100MW per day, your potential take in is $1000/day on a $66M investment (cost of the Tesla's 100MW farm).

    So on that alone, it's very tough to justify. But if we start to replace coal/ng with solar, then the need to bank during the day and release during the night to attack the duck curve, it may make sense.

    But then if we have a nuke, the need for battery would be back to the original scenario, bank in low demand at night and release at high demand during the day.

    I still think nuke replacing NG/Coal fire plant make sense for a stable base line. Renewable/Battery will take care of the fluctuation.

    For the record, I like nukelar. How do you calculate the ROI on nukes?

    Well, what Kenney promises on SMR probably doesn't even materialize for another decade or so. So who knows.

    Russian effort has quadrupled in cost once build.. $740M for a 70MW plant. That's almost 20x of a equivalent NG plant.
    https://reneweconomy.com.au/small-mo...0%20MW%20plant.

    May be solar will get cheap enough to make room to pair with batteries as well and still be competitive with NG/Coal.

    How about this to lower costs? Jeff Dahn is a professor at Dalhousie, one of the pioneers of Lithium Ion tech, and has a research partnership with Tesla.

    https://www.nature.com/articles/s41560-020-0668-8

    Anode-free lithium metal cells store 60% more energy per volume than conventional lithium-ion cells. Such high energy density can increase the range of electric vehicles by approximately 280 km or even enable electrified urban aviation. However, these cells tend to experience rapid capacity loss and short cycle life. Furthermore, safety issues concerning metallic lithium often remain unaddressed in the literature. Recently, we demonstrated long-lifetime anode-free cells using a dual-salt carbonate electrolyte. Here we characterize the degradation of anode-free cells with this lean (2.6 g Ah−1) liquid electrolyte. We observe deterioration of the pristine lithium morphology using scanning electron microscopy and X-ray tomography, and diagnose the cause as electrolyte degradation and depletion using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and ultrasonic transmission mapping. For the safety characterization tests, we measure the cell temperature during nail penetration. Finally, we use the insights gained in this work to develop an optimized electrolyte, extending the lifetime of anode-free cells to 200 cycles.
    Also.
