Construction in late 2024
CLEAN, NON-POLLUTING ENERGY
Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
1 in 8 people still do not have access to electricity. In order to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all, it is necessary to increase the use of renewable energy from 25 % today to 38 % in 2025.
ACCIONA is positioning itself as a key player in addressing the growth in energy demand while curbing the progress of global warming and promoting the transition to a decarbonized energy model.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
The generation and use of energy is responsible for 74 % of total greenhouse gas emissions in the world. This activity is the largest contributor to global warming. Investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency and other low carbon technologies will continue to be essential to meet the new needs of humanity and to minimise their negative impact on the environment.
ACCIONA considers the fight against climate change and its related effects to be a strategic priority. The Company is working to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in order to contribute to the progress of society and respond to the main challenges of sustainable development in the areas of infrastructure, water and energy, leading the transition to a low-carbon economy.
Located within the South-West Renewable Energy Zone (REZ) in NSW, the Keri Keri Renewable Energy Project is a proposed project of up to 1GW of wind, with potential for up to 400MW Solar PV and Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) in future. The project is within the Murray River Shire LGA and sits across 18,000 hectares of pastoral land.
The proposed Keri Keri Renewable Energy Project is located due south of the Willowvale Rest Area, abutting the Sturt Highway and Keri Keri Road. The planned Project EnergyConnect NSW/SA Interconnector is proposed to cross the southern portion of the 18,000ha site.
The wind farm represents an investment of up to $1.8B. The solar PV and BESS component of the project represent an additional $500M investment by ACCIONA.
- Project Configuration: up to 176 wind turbine generators based on 5.7MW machine
- Location: Murray River Shire, NSW. The project is approximately 80km west of Hay
- Capacity: up to 1GW, with potential for up to 400MW solar PV and Battery Energy Storage System (BESS)
- Energy Production: wind portion equivalent to powering up to 700,000 households, solar portion equivalent to powering up to 200,000 households
- Construction Commencement: anticipated commencement of construction in late 2024
- Project Value: up to $1.8B investment for the wind farm, and additional $500M for solar PV and BESS
The land is situated in a remote area characterised by very large pastoral landholdings. The proposed project site is very flat, with good access to transport infrastructure. The project boundary encompasses more than 18,000 ha of land, which is currently predominately used for merino sheep farming.
