About Lockyer Energy
Lockyer Energy is designed to help facilitate a transition of Queensland’s energy system away from coal by providing “firming” power to provide energy when wind or solar power is not available. Using batteries, Lockyer Energy’s project is intended to harvest and store energy from the grid during periods of high generation from solar and wind farms. In combination with gas turbines, this energy will then be used to provide power during peak periods or when power from wind and solar is not available. The site is strategically located north of Gatton in South East Queensland’s Lockyer Valley, where more than 60% of the state’s load is located.
