Greenspot seeks permission for a 500 MW/1,000 MWh battery in New South Wales

Last Updated on 08th January 2024

Greenspot Wallerawang Pty Ltd, based in New South Wales, has submitted a planning application for a 500 MW/1,000 MWh battery project at the site of a decommissioned coal-fired power plant in the state.


The privately held corporation announced on Wednesday that the battery energy storage system (BESS) will be operational by the summer of 2023/2024. The investment required is anticipated to be around AUD 400 million.


Greenspot plans to build the Wallerawang 9 battery plant within the decommissioned Wallerawang Power Station near Lithgow, which had its smokestacks and boilers demolished last month in a controlled explosion. The developer intends to use the proposed system to provide storage firming and other energy services.


The construction work is expected to begin early next year.


Greenspot is focused on delivering a shovel-ready site and our aim is to work with leading energy market players to deliver a successful example of what’s possible as Australia transitions to renewable energy,” said CEO Brett Hawkins.


The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment in New South Wales has received the project's development application and environmental impact statement. The name of the plan, according to the developer, was chosen to honor the heritage of Wallerawang Power Station's last two functioning units, 7 and 8.
