World-class energy storage testing facilities, developed by Australia's leading experts
The Australian Energy Storage Knowledge Bank project has developed two world-class energy storage testing facilities. The mobile testing platform allows you to test your system’s performance under a range of real-world conditions. The microgrid facilities at the University of Adelaide’s Thebarton campus can simulate a range of destabilising and disruptive conditions to test new technologies.
The mobile testing platform is a battery system that can be used to reduce peak loads on local substations, stabilise the electricity network and avoid power interruptions – all without manual intervention. This system can be set up at your workshop or test location and, unlike most other test batteries of this size, our mobile platform is approved for network connection, so you get to test in real-world conditions.
Find out how our mobile testing platform performed during a real-world trial at Cape Jervis.
The microgrid facility at Thebarton is a stand-alone system where you can throw all sorts of problems at your system without fear of network repercussions. It’s ideal for testing new technologies and exposing them to disruptive and destabilising conditions to ensure the technology can handle unforeseen events in the real world.
