About the UQ Bess
Located at the University of Queensland’s Gatton Campus, the Battery Energy Storage System integrates with a 3.275MW solar plant.
The BESS enables ongoing research and development into using energy storage to support the grid and potentially time shifting the solar power generated.
At the time of commissioning, the facility represented Australia's largest energy storage project operated alongside a solar power plant.
