Renewables 400

Under the Powering Queensland Plan, the Queensland Government conducted a reverse auction for up to 400 megawatts of renewable energy capacity, including up to 100 megawatts of energy storage.

The auction will help to:

  • diversify the sources of Queensland's electricity generation
  • support system security and reliability
  • accelerate the deployment of energy storage in Queensland
  • support local businesses and employment.

The auction process considered standalone renewable energy projects, standalone energy storage projects and integrated renewable and energy storage projects.

From more than 100 applications, 10 projects have been shortlisted to progress to the next stage - the submission of bids to provide the next wave of large-scale renewable energy. This stage will be managed by CleanCo, a government-owned corporation.

The projects shortlisted for the final stage of Renewables 400 are shown below.
