Battery Storage

Proposed Pelican Point Battery Energy Storage System


ENGIE is developing a Battery Energy Storage System near its Pelican Point Power Station in Outer Harbour, Adelaide.

Once operational, the battery will have the capacity to store up to 200MW of energy, which is enough to power more than 47,300 average Adelaide homes.  

The Pelican Point Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) will store unused electricity in times of low demand and send extra electricity to the grid at peak times – helping to deliver grid stability for South Australia.  

The Pelican Point BESS will support the collection of energy from renewable sources including roof top solar and play a key role in increasing South Australia’s energy capacity and delivering further grid stability. 


Key Highlights

  • As South Australia has a high amount of wind and solar generation, the BESS will provide important services to the existing power system, including capturing excess energy from rooftop solar and other resources.  
  • The proposed BESS project will be a valuable addition to South Australia’s energy system, as well helping to stabilise the energy grid.  
  • Once operational, the BESS will be able to store up to 200MW of energy, which is enough to power more than 47,300 average Adelaide homes with a four-hour duration battery (or more than 23,600 average Adelaide homes with a two-hour duration battery).    
  • The project will be owned by ENGIE and is expected to be operational by mid-2027.  
  • The proposed site is in an industrial area near existing network infrastructure, with no need for the development of new transmission lines.

Supplier and employment opportunities

ENGIE has a robust local engagement strategy and hopes to create jobs for local people and engage with First Nations and local suppliers. Whether it’s earthworks, infrastructure, building contractors, machinery operators and engineering, or accommodation, administration, catering, freight and cleaners – a number of skills and suppliers will be required by our head contractor during the construction phase of the project.

The proposed project will be delivered for and on behalf of ENGIE via ‘head contractors.’ The head contractors will be responsible for subcontracting a range of skills and suppliers
