Local Network Battery Plan

Thanks for your interest in our Local Network Battery Plan.

The first stage of this plan will see five utility-scale, network-connected batteries installed across regional Queensland to support the state’s continual uptake of renewable energy.

Green energy, stored locally

Queenslanders are putting solar on homes at world record rates with almost 40% of detached houses and over 10% of businesses across Queensland now with rooftop solar energy. The batteries will support the security of Queensland’s electricity system as we move forward, so together we can make the best use of the community’s green energy.

As part of the trial we are currently installing the batteries in Townsville, Toowoomba, Yeppoon, Bundaberg and Hervey Bay.

Each energy storage system will be a large 4MW/8MWh battery like the one already installed at Bohle Plains in Townsville (image above). They will allow the green energy made locally, during the day, to be stored locally, for use locally during the evening peak in demand.

See the latest COMMUNITY UPDATE for each battery:

This is just one of the ways Energy Queensland is enabling the transition to a low carbon energy economy.

Thank you for your interest.

Are batteries connected in the electricity network important to our energy future?
