Australian developer advances 250 MW pumped hydro project

Genex Power is set to begin building a 250 MW pumped hydro facility next to an existing 50 MW solar farm later this month, as it has secured the financing it needs to move forward.

GEV to develop compressed hydrogen ship for Australian exports

Global Energy Ventures has revealed new designs for the H2 Ship, a compressed hydrogen ship capable of transporting 2,000 tons of hydrogen from green hydrogen hubs in northern Australia to trading partners such as Singapore, South Korea, China, and Japan.

Australian government reduces support for solar, wind

The Australian government has announced new long-term funding and an expanded remit for the Australian Renewable Energy Agency beyond 2022. The funding package, which looks more like a cut than anything else, pushes investment away from solar and wind toward technologies like carbon capture and storage.

Grid constraints threaten to curtail more than 1 GW of solar projects in North Queensland

The northern Australian region this week added nine solar plants to the two already threatened – along with a wind farm – with having their output halted under certain conditions.

Canberra project REVS up Australia’s vehicle-to-grid readiness

The Australian Renewable Energy Agency is putting US$1.66 million into a vehicle-to-grid trial to demonstrate how electric vehicles can provide grid ancillary services. The REVS research and industry consortium hopes to show how EVs can generate revenue for fleet owners.

Australia approves 720 MW solar farm with massive battery

A massive solar+storage project near Uralla, New South Wales, has locked in a grid-connection agreement with Transgrid.
