About the hybrid renewable power station
The Jabiru Hybrid Renewable Power Station delivers sustainable energy for the remote township, as the community transitions from its mining legacy to its future as a tourism and services hub.
The hybrid renewable power station integrates 3.9MW solar generation and a 3MW/5MWh battery, with 4.5MW diesel generation to balance sustainability with reliability.
The power station provides Jabiru with at least 50% renewable energy over the long term—contributing to the Northern Territory’s target for 50% renewable energy by 2030.
