Re: battery storage and 3 phase power

Re: Batteries

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? @Roy_Elton 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 po ...

Re: AGL Expert events - energy storage technology - community storage - microgrids

Is AGL working on building microgrids and would they assist and support community ownership of the storage systems required? @scuzzi AGL operates a number of Microgrids in Australia and is keen to work on more. We are absolutely open to all kinds of ownership models and would be keen to work help communities establish microgrids, renewable generation or storage. Please drop us a line at social@agl.com.au if you'd like to discuss a specific project or idea.

Re: AGL Expert events - energy storage technology

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? @James That is absolutely possible and it is something we are exploring. However we would like to assure you that the energy in your battery is yours and we will only use that energy with your consent and for fair compensation.
