Templers Battery Project

Delivering 111MWs of battery storage to South Australia

111MW
Enough electricty to power 96,000 South Australian homes for over 2,5 hours.
MORE RENEWABLE ENERGY
More battery storage enables more renewable energy for South Australia.
181 JOBS
During construction, and up to 4 full-time positons will be created for the ongoing operation and maintenance.
BENEFITING THE NATIONAL GRID AND ENABLING MORE RENEWABLE ENERGY
Located on the lands of the Ngadjuri people.

ZEN Energy is an energy company committed to limiting global warming to 1.5°C. Achieving this target will rely on an economy-wide transformation to renewable energy, and this is not possible without greater amounts of energy storage in the national grid.

Our Templers Battery project will provide 111MW of storage and is being delivered by ZEN Energy after we purchased the project from Renewable Energy Solutions (RES). Once completed, it will provide dispatchable, fast-response generation and load into the SA market, enabling more of the renewable energy generation required to reduce South Australia’s carbon impact. Battery Storage Energy Systems like the Templers Battery offer a rapidly deployable solution and provide significant amounts of dispatchable energy storage to the National Energy Grid which will increase the capacity to accept more renewable energy generation.

ZEN is committed to forming long-term and mutually beneficial relationships with the communities in which we operate. and key stakeholders including the Light Regional Council to ensure a safe, smooth and successful construction process.

We acknowledge the Ngadjuri people as the Traditional Custodians of the land, waters and knowledge related to the Templers Battery site. In our work, we recognise the importance of Country – not just as a place, but how it also maintains community, family, kin, lore and language. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
