Iberdrola Advancing 320-MW Aussie Solar-Wind Project (Int'l.)
Iberdrola, DP Energy
Date: 2020-01-20
Madrid-headquartered energy major Iberdrola reports it has committed $500 million to construction of the 320-MW Port Augusta Renewable Energy Huba hybrid wind and solar project near Port Augusta in South Australia. Construction of the the DP Energy Ltd. developed project is slated to break ground in June.

The first stage of the project, which has bee sold to Iberdrola, will incorporate 210 MW of wind capacity and 110 MW of solar capacity has been sold to Iberdrola, DP Energy will hold a proposed second stage featuring more solar PV and a battery storage capacity. The Port Augusta Renewable Energy Hub will result in a significant increase in the share of wind and solar in the state's grid, and has been welcomed by the Liberal state government, which aims to reach net 100 per cent renewables by around 2030.
