150MW / 150MWh


Coal-fired to battery-powered—this phrase encapsulates the historic significance of the Hazelwood Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) in the Latrobe Valley of Victoria, Australia. Marking a new era in Australia’s energy transition, Hazelwood is the first retired coal-fired power station to host a battery storage system in Australia and represents a key moment in repurposing former thermal assets for renewable energy technologies.

The 150 MW/150 MWh BESS has been jointly funded and developed by ENGIE and Eku Energy. Fluence supplies, operates, and maintains the facility for the partnership, which will play a critical role in increasing renewable energy capacity in Victoria while delivering essential system services to the grid.
