Storage technology and smart software now makes energy storage a realistic opportunity

We design your storage systems to match your current and future needs using engineers, not salespeople. Technology is changing quickly so take advantage of the latest smart batteries and intelligent software to provide power security for your business.


HID-Australia supply turn-key large-scale storage solutions from 100kWh – 50MWH
Our engineers provide technical design and solutions tailored to your real World energy storage needs. Every installation has different power delivery requirements so the battery type and technology are carefully matched with your unique pattern.

Got a remote farm or mining operation? We have containerized solutions to allow for rapid energy storage deployment. Looking for energy security or power smoothing at your commercial premises? We have a great range of battery stations to keep your business running.

Ian at HID-Australia provided excellent design input into our requirements and worked hard to ensure we got matched with the correct battery solution. We chose Hitachi lead acid for its zero cell failure rate, proven 20-year lifespan and suitability for the hostile Australian climate.

1414 Degrees’ thermal energy storage system (TESS) is highly efficient, clean, scalable, sustainable and unlike any other energy storage system in the world.

Current storage solutions focus on storing and output of electric power, whereas the 1414 Degrees technology delivers an output of heat as well as electric power. Electricity is sourced from renewables or the grid, and is stored as latent heat at constant temperature.  The energy is then dispatched on demand.

This breakthrough technology is set to disrupt energy storage globally because it provides energy in the form most used in the world – heat.

Volt Farmer loves the Australian innovation thinking behind 1414 Degrees energy storage solution as it is super clean, long lasting and also has the dual benefit of being able to supply heat which accounts for a large proportion of commercial energy consumption. 1414 Degrees is targeted to utility-scale energy storage of 10MWH+, however, a unit could be located near the end use point and networked to support an industrial estate or microgrid application.

Compelling Value, Tested Technology: Commercial Kinetic Energy Storage System (KESS)

Key advantages of Amber Kinetics’ four-hour duration Kinetic Energy Storage System vs. chemical storage include unlimited cycling, zero degradation and a 30-year design life. Our all steel flywheels pose no risk of chemical fire, contain no hazardous chemicals, and are composed of readily obtainable materials. O&M is minimal. Amber Kinetics’ commercial products offer safe, economical and reliable energy storage for:

  • Customers in rapidly expanding utility-scale energy storage markets around the globe
  • Developing and island regions and nations with high electricity costs and unreliable grids
  • Mission critical military, industrial and commercial micro-grids
  • Cell phone infrastructure in remote locations or extreme climate conditions

The flywheel energy storage system is similarly uniquely suited to utility-scale applications including:

  • 4-Hour Flexible Resource Adequacy
  • Load-Shifting / Peak-Shaving
  • Ancillary Services such as Frequency Regulation
  • Renewable Firming
  • Spinning Reserve
  • Micro-grids
