About this event

Located 30 minutes north-west of Gympie, the Lower Wonga 800MW(ac) Solar Farm facility will have an ultimate design capacity to produce 1,700,000MWh/annum using in excess of 3 million solar PV panels sufficient to power 315,000 homes. The 4,000MWh  battery storage will supply the equivalent of an additional 290,000 homes with power.

In this presentation, Scott will share details about the project, the main challenges faced, and the benefits for the energy sector in Queensland. There will also be an opportunity to discuss general concepts regarding both solar farms and energy storage and their relation with civil engineering.
