Silver City Energy Storage would use compressed air energy storage to provide large-scale, long duration energy storage. The project would include:
- two 100MW Turbine/Generator Trains,
- an above ground water reservoir with 300ML capacity,
- a 250,000 cubic metre underground cavern with air and water shaft, and;
- approximately 16 km of high voltage transmission line.
Once operational, the project would provide peak power of 200 MW and approximately 1600 MWhr of energy storage capacity.
