Lyon’s tranche 1 battery power plant projects are Cape York (Queensland), Nowingi (Victoria) and Riverland (South Australia). Each will have a four hour duration battery energy storage system and dispatch firm clean energy through a single connection point, using a single power plant controller.

*Kingfisher was announced in 2016 but has not been under active development since 2017. Now called Opal Road Battery Power Plant
Lyon began the development of Lakeland Solar Storage, Australia’s first grid connected large-scale solar PV and battery storage project, in 2012. The project is globally recognised for its innovation and leadership.
Lyon is now progressing a large number of integrated large-scale solar PV and battery storage projects across Australia.
Lyon is also developing projects in the Philippines and in other Asian countries.
Lyon’s battery power plant project sites have been chosen because they have:
- strong solar resources
- large and flat parcels of land
- an existing power line running through the site for easy connection to the electricity grid
- already been cleared of native vegetation
- no immediately adjacent neighbours
- highway access, which is beneficial during construction
Lyon works with recognised EPC companies to deliver its projects. Lyon is committed to its projects meeting best practice safety, environmental and community standards.
Lyon and its EPC procurement teams are working to define the supply chain requirements of these projects. This includes identifying opportunities for local engagement and employment during the construction and operating phases of the project.
Lyon is committed to the Clean Energy Council’s Best Practice Charter for Renewable Energy Developments.
