Port Augusta Solar Thermal Generation Feasibility Study

Alinta Energy, the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, and the Government of South Australia have committed to jointly funding a two-year Port Augusta Solar Thermal Generation Feasibility Study.

The study involves a full feasibility and technological analysis of solar thermal power generation, including hybridised and standalone options, over the Port Augusta Power Stations (Northern Power Stations 1 and 2, and Playford B Power Station) with a view to future development of large-scale solar at site.

The study will improve coordination and collaboration between government, fossil fuel based power generators, the solar thermal industry and broader renewable energy industry through data collection, analysis, public engagement and knowledge sharing activities.

This website page will be used to host all relevant information that will be made available to the public and interested stakeholders as the study progresses. The website page will be regularly updated as the study reaches important milestones and will provide details of any scheduled public presentations and forums.
