Fluence’s AI-powered bidding software maximises the value of the ACT Battery and delivers streamlined market operations
Fluence Mosaic Optimises Global Power Generation (GPG)’s ACT Battery
MELBOURNE, Australia, Feb. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Fluence Energy, Inc. (“Fluence” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: FLNC), a leading global provider of energy storage products and services, and cloud-based software for renewables and storage, today announced the deployment of Fluence Mosaic intelligent bidding software to optimise the performance of Global Power Generation (GPG)’s newly constructed 10 MW / 20 MWh ACT Battery. Using advanced price forecasting and bidding optimisation, Mosaic will help GPG Control Room operators ensure that GPG’s battery-based energy storage system is responding optimally to market price signals and reliability needs in Australia’s National Electricity Market (NEM).
Located at Queanbeyan substation within the Australian Capital Territory’s border, the ACT Battery is the first energy storage system operated by GPG, the international power generation subsidiary of Spain’s Naturgy Energy Group. As the first grid-scale energy storage system in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), the asset will perform a strategic role in supporting the local distribution network. The ACT Battery was developed by GPG and connected to TransGrid´s substation to support ACT’s electricity network. The project is part of GPG’s commitment to building the 107 MW Berrybank 2 Wind Farm in Victoria.
“The launch of our first energy storage system is a major step toward strengthening our international presence and our contribution to the clean energy transition. With the trust of the ACT government, we selected Mosaic because the software delivers superior results, a clean user interface, and strategic risk management settings,” said Pedro Serrano, GPG Chief Business Development Officer. “We look forward to working with Fluence to maximise the value of this asset.”
“Fluence is proud to support GPG to maximise the revenue and optimise the performance of its first energy storage system both in Australia and across the world,” said Andrew Kelley, VP and Country Director, Australia at Fluence. “Through state-of-the-art machine learning, Mosaic allows asset owners to navigate the risk, volatility, and complexity of dynamic wholesale markets. The ACT Battery is a great demonstration of Mosaic’s technology agnostic approach, and ability to integrate with and optimise energy storage systems from any OEM or system provider.”
