The Gympie Regional Energy Hub Stage 2 – Battery Energy Storage System is a 1,000,000kW energy storage project located in Gympie, Queensland, Australia. The rated storage capacity of the project is 4,000,000kWh.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2017 and will be commissioned in 2021.
The Gympie Regional Energy Hub Stage 2 – Battery Energy Storage System is being developed by SolarQ. The project is owned by SolarQ (100%).
The key applications of the project are renewables capacity firming and renewables energy time shift.
SolarQ is the owner. SolarQ is the developer.
Queensland company Solar Q has lodged a development application with the Gympie Council to build a solar farm and battery storage facility 30 kilometers north-west of the city. The $2 billion facility will eventually supply about 15% of south-east Queensland’s power needs.
