DINAWAN ENERGY HUB
About The Project
Dinawan Energy Hub is a proposed hybrid wind, solar and battery storage project to be located in the heart of the South West Renewable Energy Zone in NSW. The combined output from multiple renewable energy technologies will enable reliable, clean power to be dispatched to the NSW electricity grid.
The Hub would generate enough electricity to power over one million average Australian homes per year and offset the emission of more than five million tonnes of carbon dioxide.
The project is in the early stages of planning which includes preliminary environmental studies and defining the project footprint. There will be a strong focus on consulting with the local community and stakeholders, including the Traditional Owners, during this stage and throughout the project.
The project site is mostly flat, relatively remote and expansive allowing flexibility in wind and solar farm design based on community feedback.
There will be extensive engagement with neighbours and the local community. We believe in sharing the benefits with the community. A Benefit Sharing Scheme will include a substantial community fund as well as an Electricity Offset Scheme.
Hundreds of jobs will be generated during construction and operation of the project. Spark Renewables is committed to engaging local labour, including an emphasis on Aboriginal people and women wherever possible.
Dinawan Energy Hub will support agriculture by diversifying farmers’ incomes and support grazing opportunities across the project site.
Spark Renewables is a signatory to the Clean Energy Council’s Community Engagement Best Practice Charter for Renewable Energy Developments. This involves a voluntary set of commitments that we will uphold when developing, constructing and operating projects.
