Australian manufacturer RedEarth Energy Storage (RedEarth) has announced a new modular energy storage (or “battery”) system development for the Australian commercial and industrial market using technology from the global engineering and technology company, Siemens.

RedEarth will work to provide a high performance, reliable energy storage system using Siemens’ leading SINAMICS S120 Inverter Technology as a base.

“We look forward to bringing an Australian designed and manufactured solution for commercial electricity consumers to market,” said Jeremy Whaley, Head of Research & Development at RedEarth. “The Siemens SINAMICS S120 Inverter Technology is the best option on the market, offering robust power electronics and the range of features required for this solution.”

With seamless grid connection, the new Australian made modular system will be scalable to 1MW/1MWh and competitively priced with imported systems. It will allow commercial companies to maximise the benefits of using Solar while reducing peak demand, providing backup power and additional grid support services.

“Siemens has a long history of working in collaboration with Australian OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers), providing leading products for electrification, automation and digitalisation,” said Anthony Achermann, Business Development for Siemens Power Conversion Infrastructure in Australia and New Zealand.

“We are very pleased to be working with RedEarth Energy Storage on the development of their Battery Energy Storage System for the Australian commercial and industrial market, levering off the versatility and market-leading inverter technology offered by the SINAMICS S120.”

In the next four years, RedEarth is expected to manufacture more than $70 million worth of battery systems. The company is committed to investing in additional research and development to ensure its products remain at the forefront of Australia’s growing sustainable energy needs.

Founded in 2013, RedEarth is one of the leading Australian owned and operated domestic producers of energy storage systems for residential, commercial and industrial use. RedEarth will be exhibiting at the All Energy conference in Melbourne on 23rd and 24th October.
