We are excited and proud to have been selected to be part of the 2024 Vivid Sydney Festival!

May 2024

ZEN’s proposed 1GW Western Sydney Pumped Hydro project is one of 19 projects chosen as practical, tangible and scalable projects necessary to transform Sydney into a truly sustainable city.

A New Normal Sydney is an initiative to demonstrate how our cities can evolve from simply being a consumer of water and energy, that also create a lot of waste, to becoming a self-sufficient producer that sends zero waste to landfill. Leaving Sydney a city that will never runs out and keeps its own lights on.

A former coal industry site, an old coal washery at Nattai in south west Sydney, will be re-purposed for ZEN’s Western Sydney Pumped Hydro project (WSPH), included in the New Normal initiative as the example of large scale clean energy generation and storage possible in Sydney. Once operational, the project will supply 500,000 homes and businesses with on-demand power for up to eight continuous hours.

Together, these 19 projects will unlock a $120 billion transformation of Greater Sydney, create over 80,000 jobs, and help secure Sydney’s future as one able to withstand future shocks and emerge a climate resilient global city.

The exhibition will run until June 15 at The Harwood Building, Mary Ann St, Ultimo.
