500MW battery at Liddell Power Station site will kick start Hunter Energy Park

The transformation of AGL's Liddell Power Station into a world-leading clean energy and employment hub has taken a significant step forward with the state government's approval of a 500 megawatt grid-scale battery for the site.

Decoupling of transmission lines associated with the closure of the 2000 megawatt coal-fired generator, which is due to begin next month, has also been approved.

AGL Chief Operating Officer Markus Brokhof said the transition of Liddell power station into a low-carbon industrial energy hub, known as the Hunter Energy Park, would be AGL's first rehabilitation of a coal site.
