Harvesting the sun’s energy for a brighter future

ENGIE’s vision is to energise people and communities by leading the energy transition towards renewables.

We are already operating two wind farms in South Australia and are planning a further three major solar farms across Queensland and New South Wales.

One of these is the development of the new Gregory Solar Farm. It will be built on roughly 760 hectares across one private rural property about 55 kilometres north east of Emerald (QLD).

Solar photovoltaic panels will be used to generate electricity at a capacity of 215 megawatts. As part of the project we are also building a step-up substation, site office and storage area.

The council approval for the solar farm also allows for the installation of a battery energy storage system.

Development approval was granted by the Central Highlands Regional Council in January 2018 and we are currently progressing our grid connection process.

Solar energy is an unlimited source of free energy that can be converted into electricity using a range of ever-improving techniques. Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels are currently the most widespread type of solar PV technology, however other types of solar PV are being developed that can be integrated into buildings, such as flexible PV and even PV paint. Have a look at the great work of Heliatek.

According to the International Energy Agency, renewable power capacity is set to expand by 50% between 2019 and 2024, led by solar PV. Solar energy could account for as much as 16% of total electricity production by 2050 (compared to 1.8% in 2016).

That’s why companies like ENGIE are investing in solar energy, an inexhaustible energy source with low CO2 emissions which sustainably meets our emerging energy needs.
