Renewable Energy Investor Lyon Group has launched an innovative, utility-scale solar and storage market service to cover 640MWh of storage in three major projects in Victoria, South Australia, and Queensland.
As part of the tender, Lyon has also announced a $660M solar and storage project in Nowingi in north-west Victoria. The 250MW of solar generation will charge an 80MW / 160MWh battery storage system. It will be one of the world’s biggest hybrid solar and storage systems in the world just behind Lyon’s Riverland Solar Storage plant announced in March.
Construction of the Nowingi plant will start in the next few months and is expected to provide work for 250 people.
