South Australia suffered a severe blackout past year that left 1.7 million people without electricity, prompting Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull to lash out at state regulations that encouraged what he believed to be a too heavy a reliance on renewable energy: the Australian Energy Market Operator found that the blackout was caused by too sensitive protection mechanisms at some windfarms in South Australia. They store energy generated by the neighboring Hornsdale Wind Farm, owned by French renewable energy company Neoen, to bring added reliability and stability to the state grid.
But critics have described it as a "Hollywood solution" in a country that still relies on fossil fuels, mainly coal, for two-thirds of its electricity. The plan comes after the state-wide blackout in September previous year.
One of Tesla's biggest rivals in the field is Hyundai Electric & Energy Systems, as its e-storage complex, twice as big as Tesla's, will be set up in South Korea early next year.
