SYNOPSIS

This event will explore a variety of battery / renewable energy solutions now being applied to power network refurbishment and reinforcement:

For application to networks, a “Risk approach to Designing Large Electrical Storage Facilities” built on experience in Western Australia, the prize winning paper from EECON 2016 Conference in Perth

Two South Australian case histories of network augmentation:

  1. Salisbury residential battery trial – insights into the benefits, applications and issues arising from large-scale take-up of distributed energy resources
  2. Transmission grade battery support at Dalrymple Substation, bottom of Yorke Peninsula

SPEAKERS

Mike Erskine, GHD Executive Advisor Energy & Risk

Overview: The Western Australian power network is highly decentralised, now undergoing innovative micro-grid solutions. This presentation demonstrates that introducing new technology into society can be complex for both regulators and designers. There may be risks, and scales of operation can increase quite quickly as the technology becomes more economically competitive. This paper examines risk based approaches that could be used for 0.1-5GWhr energy storage facilities for regulators and designers.

About the Speaker: Michael has over 32 years’ experience in Process, Mining, Transport, Water, Power, Food, Oil & Gas, Infrastructure and Chemical industries. He has written papers and presented on a range of topics including risk based analysis of government spending, socio safety economics of introducing autonomous vehicles into Australia, greenhouse effects of future transport scenarios, large energy storage and possible urban planning opportunities for the next 10-15 year. His consulting experience includes risk management, project management, process design and troubleshooting, accident investigation and feasibility study leader. Michael has significant experience in developing safety case and risk management documentation for government regulatory evaluation and organisational need.


Mark Vincent, Manager Network Strategy, SA Power Networks

Overview: South Australia Power Networks’ Salisbury Battery Trial involved the deployment of 100 batteries in residential customer’s premises to validate benefits accruing from batteries, better understand network impacts, and defer a large network upgrade. Initial results demonstrate significant implications for network businesses from wide-scale adoption of such technologies.

About the Speaker: Mark is a senior manager within SA Power Networks, heading up the company’s Network Innovation Centre and responsible for development and implementation of SAPN’s Future Networks Strategy, aimed at positioning SAPN for the dramatic changes anticipated in the electricity industry over the next 10 – 20 years.

Prior to his current role, Mark has been engaged in many areas within the electrical sector, including Regulatory Pricing Determinations, Operations Management, Strategic Planning and leadership of various Business Transformation Projects. Mark holds a Degree in Electronic Engineering and a number of post-graduate qualifications. He is a long standing Board Member of the Electricity Industry Superannuation Scheme (SA).


Hugo Klingenberg, Senior Manager Network Development, ElectraNet

Overview: The ESCRI (Energy Storage for Commercial Renewable Integration) project involves the delivery of a 30MW, 8MWh grid-scale battery at the Dalrymple substation on the Yorke Peninsula. The battery will provide an opportunity to demonstrate how energy storage can strengthen the grid, and deliver regulated network services and competitive market services.

About the Speaker: Hugo has over 20 years’ experience in network planning and analysis and before joining ElectraNet he was responsible for the Sub-transmission planning team with SA Power Networks. During the 1990s Hugo worked with electrical consultants in South Africa in the fields of planning, analysis, utility information systems and industry restructuring.

At ElectraNet Hugo is responsible for the Network Development business unit which performs the functions of network planning, power system and market modelling, network connection assessment, project estimates and project sponsorship. Hugo is leading ElectraNet’s response to the challenges South Australia’s transmission network is facing due to changing load behaviour and generation mix.
