The Queensland Premier, the Honorable Annastacia Palaszczuk, has announced that five locations across regional Queensland will host a large scale, network connected battery trial aimed at supporting Queensland’s uptake of renewable energy. The Premier noted that Queensland is putting solar on homes at world record rates with nearly one in three customers in detached houses now having solar PV.

Commenting on the trial, the Premier noted, “Because Queensland has one of the highest levels of rooftop solar uptake in the world, we want to make sure that we’re using this important source of renewable energy in the right way and our network is keeping up with demand.”

The energy storage trial is being conducted by Energy Queensland in five locations across Queensland which are Hervey Bay, Bundaberg, Townsville, Yeppoon and Toowoomba. Collectively, the batteries will store up to 40 megawatt hours.

The objective of the trial is to store excess renewable energy generated by Queenslanders for sustainable use including the distribution of energy into the market during high use peak periods. If the trial is successful, Energy Queensland will deploy distributed batteries in locations across the state. Read more at www.statements.qld.gov.au/statements/91787.
