The 600 kW / 760 kWh system is to be operated alongside the University of Queensland-owned Gatton solar power plant in south-east Queensland. The project is grid connected and demonstrates the viability of energy storage for large-scale solar power plant applications, and the benefits it can provide distribution networks, in the delivery of a predictable, reliable and constant flow of electricity.

The battery is used for peak load demand and is connected into the ENERGEX 11 kV network - the Lockyer Valley single-wire earth return (SWER).
