Battery storage capacity will also be built on site, according to the Banana Shire council, and will be 200MW output and 800MWh capacity (4-hour duration).

Since Labor’s win at the federal election last year, with a pledge to make the country a renewables “superpower”, Australia is targeting 26GW of installed renewable capacity by 2030.

Investments in renewables have not only come at the federal level; the Queensland government has set a target to bring 22GW of solar PV and wind projects by 2035, which will require a total of AU$62 billion investment.
