Wooreen Energy Storage System will be constructed on the traditional lands of the Brayakaulung people of the Gunaikurnai nation. EnergyAustralia respects and acknowledges their continued connection to Country, culture, and community.

EnergyAustralia has committed to building a four-hour utility-scale battery of 350 MW capacity, which is scheduled to be in operation before the end of 2026. The project will provide an economic boost for the Gippsland region, helping to secure Victoria’s energy supply, enable more renewable energy to enter the electricity network and carry on the Latrobe Valley’s proud history of powering industry and communities. EnergyAustralia’s gas-fired Jeeralang power station, located at Hazelwood North in the Latrobe Valley, has been selected as the preferred location for our battery development, based on land availability and optimal connection to the grid.

Above: The Wooreen Energy Storage System will have the capacity to power 230,000 households for up to four hours at a time.
