Equis are developing the 2.4GWh Melbourne Renewable Energy Hub (MREH). The project is significant for Victoria, and the National Electricity Market (NEM) more broadly, because of the benefits it will bring to the state, above and beyond what has been achieved to date.
The project will be delivered in two stages:
- Phase 1 – 600MW/1600MWh BESS
- Phase 2 – 600MW/1600MWh BESS
Equis’ desire for technical expertise in 500kV transmission and engineering capability resulted in their partnership with Lumea.
The accelerated development timeline of the MREH plays a key role in ensuring Victoria’s ambitious timeline of clean energy and net zero targets is met. Once complete, MREH will be the biggest battery in the southern hemisphere and one of the biggest in the world.
