EnergyAustralia intends to install a utility-scale battery with a four-hour, 350 megawatt capacity in Jeeralang, in Victoria's Latrobe Valley. The battery will be co-located at the Jeeralang Power Station in Latrobe Valley.
The battery is expected to be operational by 2026, before the retirement of the Yallourn Power Station in mid-2028.
