Lismore Battery Energy Storage System

Project Overview

The Lismore BESS site consists of leased land on which approximately 1.8 hectares of land will be used to develop the project. Below is a preliminary layout based on the technical assessment and consultation undertaken to date.

This preliminary layout provides for a 100MW/200MWh BESS; the capacity of the project is based on the available capacity at the Lismore 330kV transmission substation that the project will connect to. The project is a standalone BESS which will charge and discharge from the National Electricity Market and will NOT have a generation component like a solar or wind farm.

The Lismore BESS is proposed to provide the following benefits:

  • Reduction in greenhouse gas emissions required to meet our clean energy transition

Additionally, the proposal would allow for the:

  • Provision of embedded electricity generation, to supply into the Australian grid closer to the main consumption centres
  • Provision of social and economic benefits, through the provision of direct and indirect employment opportunities during construction and operation of the project

The Lismore BESS site is located around 12 km south-west of the Lismore town centre and around 13 km east of Casino, within the Lismore City Council Local Government Area (LGA). The site is located bordering the Lismore 330kV transmission substation to the south.
