The World’s Biggest Lithium-ion Battery Launched in Australia on Friday

The world’s biggest battery was officially released in Australia on Friday. Chief executive Elon Musk had promised his company would develop the project within 100 days of contracts which were signed at the end of September.

As a part of the project, Musk said his company will build the 100-megawatt battery which will be the world’s biggest battery. The state of South Australia announced on Friday that it had made a wonderful solution to the country’s energy difficulties.

The size of the battery is similar to the American football field.  This battery is the Powerpack system that can deliver electricity to more than 30,000 homes. The system could make a contribution to solving South Australia’s energy woes.

South Australia Premier Jay Weatherill said that on Thursday, the battery had started sending power to the state grid and it provides 70 megawatts.

Jay Weatherill stated now, the South Australia is competing others in the rival of making renewable energy and it has made the history in the making.

Jay Weatherill said Friday “South Australia is now leading the world in dispatchable renewable energy, delivered to homes and businesses 24/7.”

The efficient battery system will be the sustainable, effective energy solution, according to Tesla, because, South Australia has the highest electricity prices in the world. Due to this supply-demand variance, regular blackouts were occurred and resulted in astronomical bills for the state’s 1.7 million residents.

This new renewable energy solution would give the country big bank of saved energy which could help during high demand period.
