Sharing Benefits

Making a difference in local communities

OVERVIEW

Crystal Brook Energy Park is a world-leading hybrid renewable energy project with the ability to provide firm, reliable, 24-hour power to South Australian consumers. The project will combine around 235 MW of wind and solar generation and 130MW/400MWh of battery storage.

WIND

Wind turbines are tall structures that can capture stronger winds at higher altitudes. Turbines are generally 150-270m in height.

SOLAR

Solar farms are quiet, with the same solar panels you would place on your roof – there are just more of them.

BATTERY

Battery storage allows us to store the wind and solar energy and provide it to the grid whenever it’s needed.

LOCATION

The Crystal Brook Energy Park is located approximately 23 kilometres southeast of Port Pirie and 3 kilometres north of Crystal Brook in South Australia.

The area is located within the Port Pirie Regional Council area.

Neoen
Neoen produce affordable reliable electricity from natural renewable sources such as the sun and wind.

With 12 years’ experience behind us, our technologies are tried, tested and proven. Our South Australian Big Battery has been keeping the lights on in SA since 2017- saving consumers over $160 million in its first two years of operation!

We own and operate all of the projects we build (rather than developing them to be sold) and as long-term neighbours we are committed to sharing the benefits with surrounding communities.

This dedication to community and environment has made us a renewable energy developer of choice across Australia.
