Good thing following on the big fire at the installation of the latest Big Battery in a windfarm in Victoria.

There are two main issues with large batteries:

  1. A battery is a chemical reaction which can only be stopped by breaking the electrical circuit; and
  2. DC currents, especially at higher voltages are very difficult to interrupt.

So 2-3 medium–sized batteries, not one humungous one?
