Silver City Energy Storage

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.
