Battery storage in New Zealand

In Transmission Tomorrow, we predicted that in the future battery technologies will change the operation and role of the National Grid.

We are seeking to play a strong role in enabling New Zealand’s energy future. Our recent publication Te Mauri Hiko and related thought pieces aim to inform the debate on how, through electrification, we can meet our goals to limit climate change.

Advances in battery technology are expected to play an important role in achieving that outcome. Distributed Battery Energy Storage Systems in New Zealand examines the operational impact on the power system of the widespread adoption of these systems in conjunction with the large-scale uptake of solar PV and electric vehicle charging and identifies what is required to enable a successful integration and ensure a reliable fit-for-purpose power system.
