‘Battery of the north’ awaits with Pioneer‑Burdekin project

Pumped hydro energy storage will power a reliable energy supply when renewable energy generation from wind and solar is low.

The potential capacity of the project is two and a half times that of Snowy Hydro 2.0 in New South Wales.

This would make Pioneer-Burdekin the largest pumped hydro project in the world, creating thousands of local jobs during the construction phase.

A new public entity, Queensland Hydro, has been established to lead development of pumped hydro projects in Queensland. Queensland Hydro has begun detailed analysis into the site for the Pioneer-Burdekin project, including geology, hydrology and environmental conditions.
