Pacific Green Enters Agreement to Secure Strategic Site to Develop 0.5GW / 1.0GWh Battery Energy Park in South Australia

DOVER - Nov. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- / Pacific Green Technologies, Inc. ("Pacific Green"), (OTCQB: PGTK) announces that Pacific Green Technologies (Australia) Pty Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Pacific Green, has entered into an exclusivity agreement to secure a strategically located land site in Limestone Coast, South Australia to develop a 0.5 GW / 1.0 GWh battery energy park (the “Project”).

The Project will commence construction in 2024, with the energy park anticipated to be operational in 2026. When completed it will be the largest battery park in South Australia, connecting directly into an existing 275 kVA substation.

The Project will deliver a major increase in energy storage capacity in South Australia, reducing wholesale energy costs for the state, while also strengthening the region’s energy stability for communities and supporting South Australia’s net-zero transition.

Joel Alexander, Pacific Green’s Managing Director, Australia, commented: “We are excited to grow our portfolio into South Australia, which already has the highest adoption of renewable generation of all states in Australia. Our Limestone Coast Battery Energy Park can act as a load during the day, increasing the viability of even more solar and wind generation, whilst shifting energy to the times it is most valuable in the evening peak. This momentum allows us to accelerate progress towards South Australia achieving 100% net renewables by 2030.

Scott Poulter, Pacific Green’s CEO, added: “Coupled with our energy parks in Portland, Victoria, this agreement cements Pacific Green’s multi-gigawatt platform that will be deployed across Australia in the coming months and years.”
