This is what Australia’s power generation future looks like. Despite the “but we have plenty of coal” nay-sayers, the future is very likely to be hybrid power plants like the Windlab and Vestas 60MW Kennedy Energy Park in central north Queensland. It is made up of 43MW wind, 15MW PV and a 2MW/4MWh battery. While the details of the NEG are sparse, it seems it will favour projects like this.
TransGrid’s submission to the Finkel Review said that they believed “that a trajectory towards 100% renewable generation is feasible, and that the technical challenges associated with this transition can be met in a way that is affordable for consumers.”
The future is very promising for the industry. It would be good if all our politicians would see this opportunity for innovation and jobs and get behind this shift.
