The system, which comprises 900kWh of redT flow machines coupled with a 120kW C1-rated lithium battery, will be deployed as an active energy storage infrastructure asset at the University’s new 11,400 m2 Biomedical Learning and Teaching building, which will house state-of-the-art biomedical research laboratories over 4 floors. Coupled with on-site solar PV assets, the system will be used to maximise the university’s utilisation of renewable energy to significantly reduce energy costs for campus buildings. This will generate significant savings for the site and also open up potential new revenue streams, in the form of both contracted and merchant grid services in the future. The system will be used as a ‘flexible platform’ and will become part of the “Monash Microgrid”, in partnership with Monash Energy Materials and Systems Institute (MEMSI). The project aims to integrate distributed renewables on Monash’s campuses to increase reliability and stability within the local grid and in the future, allow for innovative, market based peer-to-peer energy trading.
