The units seem to be perhaps more correct than usual but "I have doubts" re
some of the magnitudes.
"As announced in March, Manilla will become host to a 2MW/17MWh hydrogen
storage system, that will work alongside a 4.5MW solar farm and a
4.5MW/4.5MWh battery storage system."
With the support of a $3.5 million grant provided by the NSW government to
the Manilla solar project under the Regional Community Energy Program, the
project will be integrated with the UNSW developed H2Store energy storage
*The H2Store technology has been developed by a team of researchers at the
UNSW Sydney campus, led by Professor Kondo-Francois Aguey-Zinsou*, and
offers the production and storage of hydrogen that is scalable and portable.
Australian-based venture LAVO, a university spin-off that has developed an
innovative hydrogen-based energy storage system for homes and businesses,
is one step closer to commercialisation, announcing that the technology is
now ‘commercially-ready’ and will soon start taking orders for the first
The LAVO system has been developed by researchers at the University of New
South Wales, and uses compressed hydrogen as the main medium for energy
storage. The company says that by using hydrogen, the LAVO device can offer
three times the amount of energy storage compared to other devices of
similar size, and offers double the operational life.
The LAVO system utilises a metal hydride material, which absorbs hydrogen
that provides a safe and stable medium for storing hydrogen over the
