The "high penetration" hybrid power service will certainly be released for the community of Jabiru. Along with the 3.9-MW planetary system, the Jabiru Hybrid Renewable Project will include a 3-MW/5-MWh battery, incorporated with a 4.5-MW diesel generator.

Australian off-grid independent power provider Energy Dope Pty Ltd (EDL) will certainly own and also run the asset.

Juwi expects construction to start soon, with the solar farm and also battery system planned to be turned on in very early 2022. The diesel power plant will be completed by the end of this year.

Once the project is fully operational, at the very least half of Jabiru town's yearly electrical power needs will be covered by renewables. With Jabiru Hybrid, Juwi has invested greater than EUR 100 million (USD 121.2 m) in Australia, the business noted.
