    Photon Energy Group Acquires Solar and Battery Storage Project in Australia


    November 21, 2022 - Gulf Oil & Gas

     

      - Located in Boggabri, New South Wales, the facility will have a generation capacity of 9.8 MWp and is expected to generate around 16.4 GWh of renewable energy per year. - The project, which incorporates a 10 MWh battery storage system, represents the Company’s first utility-scale solar-plus-storage installation and will serve as a prototype for a future roll-out across Photon Energy Group’s European markets. - Upon completion, the Boggabri installation will expand the Group’s IPP (independent power producer) portfolio to 96 power plants, with a combined generation capacity of nearly 130 MWp.

      Photon Energy N.V. has announced that it has agreed to acquire the development rights and land for a 9.8 MWp/10 MWh solar and battery energy storage system facility in New South Wales.

      ‘This transaction marks a significant milestone as Photon Energy Group’s first utility scale solar and battery storage project. This project will make a meaningful contribution to the NSW Government’s objective to deliver a 50% cut in emissions by 2030 compared to 2005 levels,’ said Michael Gartner, CTO of Photon Energy Group and Managing Director of Photon Energy Australia.

      The project is located in the vicinity of the town of Boggabri, New South Wales, nearly 500km north-west of Sydney. It will extend over 22 hectares of greenfield land and will be equipped with over 16,500 high-efficiency bifacial solar modules mounted on single-axis trackers.

      The facility will deliver around 16.4 GWh of renewable energy annually to the grid operated by Essential Energy. The electricity will be sold on the energy market on a merchant basis. Photon Energy Group expects to break ground on the project towards the end of the second quarter of 2023.

      The project represents the Company’s first utility-scale solar-plus-storage installation and will serve as a prototype for a future roll-out across Photon Energy Group’s European markets.

      Globally, Photon Energy Group has a total of 92 MWp of PV plants in operation and solar projects with a combined capacity of 900 MWp at different stages of development. This includes 300 MWp/3.6 GWh which, once operational, will represent the world’s biggest solar and storage power plant, excluding pumped hydro.
