The Queensland Microgrid Project is a smart grid project being developed in Queensland, Australia. It is a microgrid renewable integration project.
The Queensland Microgrid Project is currently under construction and will use smart grid technology. The project has a rated capacity of 33MW.
The smart grid project is owned by City of Gold Coast.
The Queensland Microgrid Project has the following equipment associated with it:
- – 4.5-5MW/5-10MWh Energy Battery Storage System
- – Solar Power Supply
– A 33MW solar and battery project is set to go ahead in a flood-prone area in urban coastal south-east Queensland after the Gold Coast City council.
– RenewEconomy that its size had been pared back over the course of three years for a number of reasons, including concerns around visual amenity, with all parties settling on 33MW of PV and a battery energy storage system of between 4.5-5MW/5-10MWh.
