The Australian government, through the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, has announced a A$99-million investment in Neoen’s Goyder wind farm and big battery project, which will provide electricity to BHP’s copper mine in the northern part of South Australia.

Once completed, the wind farm will generate 203 MW of electricity, and the battery will store 477 MWh – that is enough to help meet half of Olympic Dam mine’s electricity needs with clean cheap power.

Climate Change and Energy Minister Chris Bowen said the project is important for the South Australian clean energy and resources sectors.

“It's great to see clean energy powering mining – bringing together key national industrial strengths in renewables and resources, while creating jobs,” said Bowen.

Blyth Battery is the fifth big battery project financed by the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, bringing their total investment in this technology to over A$390-million.
