Cleanco targets 10 renewable projects in Queensland

The Queensland Government has moved forward on its Renewables 400 auction, announcing 10 big renewable and storage projects that will compete for contracts with the newly-formed Cleanco generator, which will begin trading at the end of October.

Renew Economy is reporting the 10 projects shortlisted by the Queensland Government total more than 2000MW of wind, solar and battery storage capacity, and include some of the most ambitious and biggest hybrid projects in the country.

These include Goldwind’s 800MW Clarke Creek wind farm with battery storage near Rockhampton, Acciona’s 540MW McIntyre wind farm  near Stanthorpe, and Neoen’s Kaban renewable hub, including battery storage, near Ravenshoe.
