AGL Expert events - energy storage technology

Alumni

*EDIT*: That's all the time our experts have for tonight, folks. Continue to post your questions and we'll keep providing answers over the remainder of the week!

 

Hi everyone, starting 7.30pm AEDT tonight, our storage technology experts @elynchbell@thatguydan and @David_ESSOps will be making themselves available to discuss AGL energy storage solutions with you. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have!


Please remember to stay on-topic; if you have any questions unrelated to energy storage or batteries then please start a new topic in the appropriate board. Remember to adhere to the community guidelines - this discussion will be monitored by the mod team Smiley Happy

 

The team will be here for 30 minutes to answer your questions - but please feel free to continue asking and we'll do our best to answer everything. We look forward to an exciting discussion!

evening experts

this may be dooubling up sorry if so

2 QQ

 

1  we have 2 3 phase power devices at home (a compressor pump and the "oven" induction hotplates):  how do batteries "deal with"  3phasee power, and such devices?

 

2 can the batteries store current generated by windmills?

 

thanks in advance

How much power can a battery (such as AGL is selling now) store? Is it possible to 'daisy-chain' batteries to increase the amount stored AND is it possible to essentially create three-phase power from such a combination?

Please provide an indication of the price of a AGL battery or who to contact to discuss a more detailed proposal.

@rxd, thanks for your question.  

 

The batteries we are offering right now are single phase.  We are exploring 3 phase technology and this may be offered in the future.  For now, we can look at multi-phase solutions using more than one battery, or as we did in a recent installation, we can re-organise the circuits so that the multi-phase loads are not supported by the battery. This suited our customer who didn't want to lose the benefit of his battery into his little used air-conditioner or hot water system.  

In response to the second part of your question, about adding energy from wind power, the answer is no.  Our batteries are aimed at solar as the primary energy source, with grid as alternative.  

 

I hope this gives you what you're looking for.

AGL has three sizes of battery. The AUO PowerLegato can store 7.2kWh of which 6.5kWh is usable. We have two Sunverge units that can store 11.65kWh (9.9kWh usable) and 19.4kWh (16.5kWh usable). With the Sunverge we can use three batteries to supply three phase power.

Are the Battery sytems going to be offered with the panels as a package?

The AGL website has some details about a 19.4kW battery. So can my 10kW system (assuming its at full capacity) charge that in about 2 hours?

hi experts

 

i've had a look at the sunverge website and it talks about utilities sending power from my battery to the grid when electricity prices are high. is this something you guys are going to do if I buy one of these?

 

thanks
