Renewable energy will be available on demand, with the establishment of a solar, wind and battery storage near Hughenden in North Queensland.

ARENA CEO Ivor Frischknecht said the project would provide reliable and affordable power and start the journey towards constantly available renewable energy.

Kennedy Energy Park will be the first time a combined large-scale solar, wind and battery installation has connected to Australia’s national electricity market,” Frischknecht said.

Wind will generate power throughout the day and night, while solar activates during peak demand times when the sun is shining. Battery storage will smooth out power delivery for both, dispatching when it is needed most and increasing overall reliability.
