In the remote off-grid township of Jabiru in the Northern Territory, EDL is the developer, owner and operator of a hybrid renewable power station. The station is providing energy to thousands of local residents for the long term as they transition away from their mining legacy, to their future as a tourism and services hub.
The micro grid uses a hybrid model of 3.9MW solar generation and a 3MW/5MWh battery, with 4.5MW diesel generation to balance sustainability with reliability. Opening at the beginning of 2022, it was the first in Australia at this scale.
ABC News reports on the ground-breaking EDL Hybrid Renewable Power Plant in Jabiru, NT – providing reliable, renewable energy for residents and businesses and setting a new benchmark for the future of sustainable energy.
