The Capital Battery is a 100 MW stand-alone battery capable of storing up to 200 MWh of energy with up to 2 hours of power in reserve.
50 MW was committed as part of the ACT Government’s 2020 renewable energy auction, with a further 50 MW yet to be contracted.
The battery will provide a predictable supply of electricity to the grid through its ability to dispatch energy during peak times of demand.
Battery storage allows us to store the energy and provide it to the grid whenever it’s needed.
FOR LOCAL industry
Education and research opportunities to grow the ACT’s renewable sector
Greater stability through a range of grid support services
For your community
Reliable energy, lower electricity bills and community co-investment
These big batteries mean that our small jurisdiction is again punching above our weight when it comes to real climate action. Our investment is on par with the Tesla Hornsdale battery on a per capita basis – the largest investment of its kind in the world.

Neoen has been contributing to Australia’s energy transition with 100% renewable energy since 2012.
With a balanced portfolio of wind, solar and big battery projects, we are aiming to achieve 10 GW by 2030. We own and operate all of the projects we build (rather than developing them to be sold) and as long-term neighbours we are committed to sharing the benefits with surrounding communities.
This dedication to community and environment has made us a renewable energy developer of choice in Australia.
