The Highbury Pumped Hydro Energy Storage (PHES) will be located approximately 13km North East of Adelaide on the 350ha of an unused quarry site. It will have the capacity to store 1350MWh of energy and to generate up to 300MW for 4.5 hours. When the demand for electricity is high and supply is scarce, water would be released to generate electricity.
