The world's largest lithium-ion battery is about to be officially launched in South Australia as the state works to end its energy woes.
The battery power packs are installed near the Outback town of Jamestown, about 200 kilometers (120 miles) north of the state capital Adelaide.

South Australia Premier Jay Weatherill announced Friday the battery began dispatching power into the state grid on Thursday afternoon, providing 70 megawatts as temperatures rose above 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit).

"We're in the process of testing that battery right now and we expect it to be ready on December 1", Zibelman told Australian Broadcasting Corp.
