Grid Stability for ACT
The Capital Battery is a 100MW stand-alone battery capable of storing up to 200MWh of energy with up to 2 hours of power in reserve.
50 MW was committed as part of the ACT Government’s 2020 renewable energy auction, with a further 50 MW yet to be contracted.
The battery will provide a predictable supply of electricity to the grid through its ability to dispatch energy during peak times of demand.
Battery storage allows us to store the energy and provide it to the grid whenever it’s needed.

Neoen has won our fourth ACT Renewables Auction with the ACT Government to build a big battery in Canberra. Neoen is delighted to be supporting the ACT government to maintain 100% renewable electricity.
These big batteries mean that our small jurisdiction is again punching above our weight when it comes to real climate action. Our investment is on par with the Tesla Hornsdale battery on a per capita basis – the largest investment of its kind in the world.

With 12 years’ experience behind us, our technologies are tried, tested and proven. Our South Australian Big Battery has been keeping the lights on in SA since 2017, and saved consumers over $150 million in its first two years of operation alone !
We operate all of our assets from our Operations Control Centre located in our offices in Canberra, where over half of our Australian staff are also based.
