German solar developer Wirsol Energy has received development approval for its Maryvale solar and energy storage project in New South Wales (NSW), Australia, by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment.

Located near to the city of Dubbo, the co-located project will consist of roughly 235MW of solar PV, combined with 190MWh – 270MWh of energy storage in the form of a lithium-ion battery energy storage system (BESS).

The project has now received planning approval and has submitted a grid connection request. It is expected to start construction in late 2023, with commercial operations beginning in early 2025.
