Vena Energy to build Queensland’s largest battery

A 100 megawatt battery will be built near Wandoan, in Queensland’s Western Downs, marking the first stage of a major renewable energy project.

Queensland Country Life is reporting it will be Queensland’s biggest battery, with the project creating 30 jobs over its estimated 12-month construction period.

Vena Energy CEO Nitin Apte said the battery build would begin in July and they would be using local resources where possible.

The 1000 megawatts Wandoan South Solar Project will be connected to Powerlink’s Wandoan South Substation. Once the battery is built, Vena Energy plans to begin work on the solar farm at the same site in 2021.
