World's largest lithium-ion battery is ready to power-up

While the new energy storage installation will no doubt be helpful in dealing with grid supply over the coming years, there will still be a tight power supply this summer - particularly in South Australia and in Victoria - owing to the recent closure of a large coal-fired power plant.

The premier said the battery would be up and running in time for summer to provide backup power and to help bring stability to the state's electricity network.

The Tesla Semi was formally unveiled in November 2017, and a host of big-name companies have pre-ordered the trucks to try them out.

Tesla asserts that the Roadster will hit 60 mph in just 1.9 seconds, 100 mph in 4.2 seconds, and complete the quarter mile in 8.8 seconds. "That serious enough for you?" The state has yet to say how much they will pay for the battery.

The battery was commissioned after a storm led to a blackout in September 2016. The event occurred simultaneously with the signing of an interlink agreement, now accepted by AEMO and just signed by Electranet.

Elon Musk during his presentation at the Tesla Powerpack Launch Event at Hornsdale Wind Farm in Adelaide Australia on Sept. 29 2017

Atlassian co-founder and billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes jumped on the opportunity to challenge Musk directly.

Tesla started summoning non-employee Model 3 reservation holders to configure their cars, a sign of progress for the sedan plagued by production problems.

The Hornsdale Wind Farm near Jamestown, South Australia, produces 315 megawatts of power, but like any wind farm it's not a steady source of power.

In preparation for the automated horizon the Tesla Semi is also equipped to travel in a convoy. Had Tesla failed, the company would not have taken a fee for the project.

Elon Musk, the South African-born inventor and entrepreneur, showcased the new vehicle Thursday in Hawthorne, California, site of Tesla's design bureau and the headquarters of the billionaire's aerospace company SpaceX. Recently, he also helped Puerto Rico recover after the island was slammed by Hurricane Maria in September. The battery pack will power one motor in front and two in back in the all-wheel-drive sports car.
