Shell Energy to connect 1GWh BESS to Australia’s grid

January 11, 2023

Shell plans to build, own and operate this Wallerawang 9 battery, which will sit within the Wallerawang power station site, where two 500MW coal-fired generating units were decommissioned in 2014.

The battery is being developed by Greenspot, a privately owned NSW group, which was established to acquire and repurpose property assets primarily from the fossil fuel industry.

Shell Energy will be responsible for the grid connection process and, subject to a final investment decision, is planning to build, own and operate the battery on 20 hectares of land to be leased from Greenspot. A further 200 hectares of the 620-hectare site has been identified by Greenspot as an employment hub for a range of future facing and high-tech industries.
