Energy giants AGL and Someva Renewables have announced a partnership to spearhead the development of Pottinger Energy Park in New South Wales.

The Pottinger Energy Park, to be located between Hay and Deniliquin in the NSW South West Renewable Energy Zone, promises to be a game-changer, boasting a multifaceted renewable energy infrastructure. With plans for a 1.2 GW wind farm, 300 MW solar farm, and a state-of-the-art 500 MW / 2000 MWh battery energy storage system (BESS), the project signals a bold step toward energy diversification.

"The partnership with Someva Renewables marks an important moment in AGL's journey towards a renewable future. The Pottinger Energy Park is in line with our ambitious target to add 12 GW of new renewable generation and firming capacity to our portfolio by 2035," said Markus Brokhof, COO of AGL.

Jamie Chivers, Managing Director of Someva Renewables, highlighted the project's potential impact on NSW's energy landscape. "The Pottinger Energy Park could play a vital role in NSW's energy transition, offering reliable renewable energy to hundreds of thousands of homes while providing an economic boost to the Riverina region," said Chivers.

The collaborative effort between AGL and Someva Renewables involves a shared commitment to community engagement and environmental stewardship. Chivers stated, "Our two-year-long engagement with local stakeholders demonstrates the overwhelming support for the Pottinger Energy Park. We are excited to collaborate with AGL to deliver a pioneering renewable energy project for NSW."

Someva Renewables, an Australian-owned renewable energy developer, is taking the lead in designing, engaging with local communities, and navigating regulatory processes for the Pottinger Energy Park. If approved, the project could commence construction in 2026, potentially generating up to 800 construction jobs and sustaining 60 ongoing positions.
