Elon Musk's Tesla to make world's largest lithium-ion battery

Tesla has announced it's build what it calls the world's largest battery energy-storage system in South Australia.

Tesla's 129MWh battery system will store energy - produced by a nearby wind farm still under construction by the French company Neoen, providing greater stability and a backup power source when necessary. Musk pledged the project would be completed in 100 days or it's free.

Musk said at a press conference this week the 100MW project was more than a small jump on current systems.

Also, the state became the butt of the nation's jokes previous year when the lights went out for over 1.5 million South Australians following a storm.

Hee hee: Soon after People claimed the two were engaged , Meredith took to Instagram to make a joke about it. We hope Patton's eight-year-old daughter, Alice Rigney , is just as excited as the couple.

Jay Weatherill, the premier of SA, today said that the project would "stabilise the South Australian network as well as putting downward pressure on prices". To prevent further blackouts, the South Australian government sought out a renewable energy solution.

Funding to build the battery will come from the South Australian government's plan - worth 550 million Australian dollars ($417 million) - to deliver affordable and clean power.

The battery will have a capacity of 100 megawatts, three times bigger than the world's largest battery at the moment. In a tweet, Musk proudly announced that the Hornsdale Powerpack system would be the world's highest power battery system.

Upon completion in December 2017, the system will be big enough to provide power for more than 30,000 homes during peak hours, approximately equal to the amount of homes that lost power during the blackout period.

Wimbledon defended its response time in a series of tweets , saying a paramedic made it onto court 17 within one minute . Mattek-Sands is one of the most experienced figures on the WTA Tour having turned professional 18 years ago.

It isn't only in Australia where Tesla is working with utilities on energy storage.

Tesla will provide a 100 MW/129 MWh Powerpack system that will be paired with renewable energy provider Neoen's Hornsdale Wind Farm near Jamestown, South Australia. In the end the state government made a decision to ignore the feds and pursue their own energy security policy, which included building a huge amount of battery storage.

In addition, Tesla's Powerwall is now being installed for residential customers across Australia and ramping up quickly. Musk told reporters that the project will attract a lot of public attention, as people will be curious to see whether they get it done within 100 days and if it worked.
