Shell Energy has acquired the development rights for a 500MW/1000MWh Battery Energy Storage System project, located within the former Wallerawang Power Station site, near Lithgow in Central West NSW.
Development approvals are already in place, and the site provides access to important infrastructure. While there is further work required to get to a Final Investment Decision, once built, the BESS will be connected to the adjacent 330kV Wallerawang Substation.
Batteries have a vital role to play in the energy transition, addressing the intermittency of renewables and providing system stability and delivering this project will be an important step forward in securing the energy future of New South Wales.
This investment is yet another significant step in Shell’s goal to build a low-carbon integrated power business in Australia in line with our customers’ evolving energy needs.
