Kennedy Energy Park - Windlab / Eurus
Australia-based renewables firm Windlab and Japan’s Eurus energy have received development approval for a hybrid project comprising 20 MW solar, 30 MW wind and a 2 MW lithium-ion battery storage system in Queensland, Australia. Construction of the AU $120 million (US $89.8 million) Kennedy Energy Park, located 20 kilometres south east of Hughenden, near the Flinders Highway, will begin in early 2017. It will include 200,000 solar panels on single-axis trackers and 9-12 wind turbines. More than 50 direct and indirect jobs will be created as well as multiple jobs during construction.
Windlab plans to use this first stage of the project to prove the effectiveness of the technology and then gain support for a far larger deployment. Windlab plans to build more than 1 GW of wind and solar north of Hughenden, after completing this first stage.
Kennedy Energy Park will be operational early in 2018 generating enough electricity for more than 30,000 homes.
