FRV to carry out its first hybrid Solar-Storage project in Australia

June 17, 2021

• FRV begins construction of Dalby Hybrid Power Plan, a 5 MWac power plant with 2.4 MWac of photovoltaic solar power generation and 2.5 MWac /5MWh of co-located battery storage in Queensland.

• FRV has well established experience in Australia, but the Dalby Hybrid Power Plant is its first hybrid project in the country and one of the first Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) projects in Queensland.
Fotowatio Renewable Ventures (FRV), part of Abdul Latif Jameel Energy and a global leading provider of sustainable energy solutions will develop its first 5 MWac Solar-Storage Hybrid Power Plant in Australia.

Located in the Dalby region of Queensland, the Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) facility will feature 2.4 MWac of solar photovoltaic (PV) generation panels and a 2.5 MWac/5 MWh energy storage system which, once completed, will be one of the first co-located PV and BESS system greenfield developments in Australia.

The plant’s output will be connected to Ergon’s distribution network, allowing the hybrid power plant to supply and take electricity from the grid and trade in the National Electricity Market.

The plant’s technical solution is designed to be operated as a predictable and dispatchable generation plant, to provide a reliable energy output. The system will have the ability to access the maximum number of markets and revenue streams, including arbitrage and FCAS services.
