Enhanced Climate Resilience and Grid Connected Renewable Energy through Battery Storage

Enhanced Climate Resilience and Grid Connected Renewable Energy through Battery Storage

Description

Description: 

The project is a public private partnership in Port Vila, Vanuatu. It comprises solar photovoltaic plants (5 MWp) with a battery energy storage system (BESS) (11.5 MW/6.75 MWh), owned by the Government, and operated and maintained by UNELCO, the private sector utility under its concession agreement. The BESS will stabilize the grid integration of the PV plants and enhance the climate resilience of the power system. The project will double the renewable energy supplied to the grid, decrease diesel fuel consumption by 31%, improve the reliability of the electricity supply, and lower the price of electricity for customers on Efate Island.
