The Dalby Hybrid Power Plan project consists of a 2.4-MW photovoltaic or pv (PV) plant and also a 2.5-MW/ 5-MWh battery energy storage system (BESS). Anticipated to be completely functional by early 2022, the plant will be linked to Ergon's circulation network.

While this is FRV's 9th project in Australia generally, it is the very first of its kind for the firm there. Its regional portfolio total up to 640 MW of direct existing (DC) ability.

FRV already has two battery projects in the UK-- the already functional 7.5-MW/ 15-MWh Holes Bay center as well as the 34-MW/68-MWh Contego battery project, arranged for conclusion in 2021.
