200MW / 400MWh


Situated within the Rangebank Business Park in Melbourne’s southeast, the Rangebank Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) will provide 200MW / 400MWh capacity of reliable and flexible energy to Victorians upon completion in late 2024.

Jointly developed by Eku Energy and Shell Energy with minority equity partner, Perfection Private, the grid-scale battery will be connected to Victoria’s transmission network at the Cranbourne Terminal Station. The Rangebank BESS will help to increase Victoria’s renewable energy hosting capacity and provide essential system services that will support the safe, secure and reliable operation of Australia’s energy system.

The BESS will be built, serviced, and maintained by Fluence, a global provider of energy storage products and services, and cloud-based software for renewables and storage, utilising Fluence’s latest GridstackTM product.
