Conergy flicks the switch on Australia’s first grid-connected, utility-scale solar and battery facility in Far North Queensland

Australia’s first grid-connected, utility-scale solar and battery facility – 13MW Lakeland Solar & Storage Project on Queensland’s Cape York Peninsula – has started feeding electricity into the grid, providing certainty of summer power supply for Far North Queenslanders.

While ‘flicking the switch’ to connect Lakeland I to the grid, project developer and owner Conergy announced Lakeland Stage II, fo...

NINH THUAN, VIETNAM, January 23, 2018 – Conergy, Southeast Asia’s leading downstream solar specialist, today announced their selection as the EPC contractor for
a 30 MWp solar photovoltaic (PV) power project in the south central coastal region of Vietnam, representing the first phase of a 300-MW clean energy pipeline. Local government officials, Conergy executives and investors held a ground-breaking ceremony today for 80 guests.

The solar plant, planned for nearly 400,000 square meters, will be located in Ninh Thuan province and is being built by Conergy on behalf of i...

Conergy has designed and installed a 145 kWp solar power system for one of the most iconic landmarks in Singapore’s skyline, Marina Bay Sands, one of Asia’s leading destinations for business, leisure and entertainment. This marks the first commercial-scale rooftop installation for Conergy in Singapore, and the highest location in the country that the company has fitted panels on thus far, at 200m above sea level.

With solar panels lining the roofs of the iconic Sands SkyPark and covering an area of 880 sqm, Marina Bay Sands will be able to reduce carbon emissions...

Lakeland’s journey to energy security is almost finished with all panels and construction complete.

The Lakeland Solar & Storage Project is waiting on the delivery of the battery system and the system’s air conditioned housing.

This will signal that the project is almost ready to store the electricity it produces.

Once the battery system arrives safely in its new home, a series of tests will need to be carried out to ensure all the components are working properly and their integration into the grid is going smoothly.

Energy independence through solar efficiency is a step closer for the people of Daly River, about 220 kilometres south-west of Darwin.

Construction is about to start on a one megawatt solar facility near the remote Indigenous community of Nauiyu, which will meet 50 per cent of the surrounding area’s energy needs.

The Daly River project, designed and built by Conergy and BMD Constructions in a joint venture, will provide 100 per cent of the community’s energy needs during the day meaning diesel generators are only in use at night.

Construction of Conergy’s $42.5 million Lakeland Solar & Storage Project has passed the half-way mark, putting the world’s first utility-scale solar and storage project on track for completion in April this year.

Located off the Mulligan Highway at Lakeland in Far North Queensland, the project is the first integrated solar, storage and fringe-of-grid project of its scale, and will demonstrate grid-to-islanding functionality.

The project consists of a 13MWp/10.8MWac solar power PV ground-mounted array (featuring 41,440 solar panels), with a 1.4MW/5.3MWh Conergy ‘CHE...
