    Queensland to build 200-MW/400-MWh battery

    June 24, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      June 24 (Renewables Now) - Queensland’s publicly-owned CS Energy and Powerlink will build a 200-MW/400-MWh battery in South East Queensland, probably at Powerlink’s Greenbank substation, which is currently the preferred location, it was announced today.

      This is one of 13 batteries that will be rolled out across the Australian state with funds from the 2022 Queensland Budget. In addition to the 400-MWh big battery, Energy Queensland will deliver 12 batteries of up to 8 MWh each.

      The Greenbank battery will be installed, owned and operated by CS Energy, while Powerlink will provide land and connection services.

      “Large-scale batteries like the one planned for Greenbank allow us to capture the energy generated by Queenslanders, and best use it for Queenslanders,” said Treasurer Cameron Dick, noting the state’s high rate of rooftop solar and adding that the batteries support its 50% renewable energy target by 2030.

      Minister for Energy, Renewables and Hydrogen Mick de Brenni said the new commitment will increase the battery storage Queensland’s publicly-owned power companies are investing in from 430 MW to more than 720 MW.
