World first to combine big solar and storage

A world-leading project in far north Queensland is set to combine big battery storage and big solar to supply solar power after sundown and during peak usage times.

The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) is providing $17.4 million funding support for Conergy to build and operate a 10.8 MW (AC) solar photovoltaic (PV) plant with 1.4 MW /
5.3 MWh of lithium-ion battery storage near the town of Lakeland.

ARENA CEO Ivor Frischknecht said the landmark project was well placed to work alongside ARENA’s major push to deploy mo...

Conergy will next week begin construction of Australia’s first solar and storage project, designed to consistently feed renewable energy into the grid and demonstrate the capability for large-scale solar and storage to provide reliable future power quality and supply at a fringe-of-grid location.

The $42.5 million project, located off the Mulligan Highway at Lakeland in Far North Queensland, is the Southern Hemisphere’s first integrated solar, storage and fringe-of-grid project of this size and scale, and will demonstrate grid-to-islanding functionality.
