Lyon, JERA, Fluence partner for Asian roll out of utility-scale battery storage
The collaboration agreement combines one of the world’s largest energy companies (JERA), the world’s most experienced battery storage technology company (Fluence), and the world’s leading independent developer of integrated utility-scale battery storage and renewable generation projects (Lyon).
The parties will assess utilisation of utility and industrial scale battery storage solutions in new projects and at existing renewable and thermal generation plants across their collective operational footprints. On projects to which the parties commit, Lyon will be the project developer, JERA an investor, and Fluence the energy storage solution and service provider.
JERA is an equal joint venture of two major Japanese electricity companies, TEPCO Fuel & Power Incorporated and Chubu Electric Power Company.
Fluence is an equal joint venture of Siemens and AES and combines all battery-related actives previously undertaken by the parent companies.
The collaboration agreement expands on the strong relationships formed by the parties through development of Lyon’s tranche 1 integrated solar and storage projects:
- Cape York, Queensland (55MW solar + 20MW/80MWh storage)
- Nowingi, Victoria (253 MW + 80MW/320MWh)
- Riverland, South Australia (253MW + 100MW/400MWh) (up to 330MW solar including stage 2)
