Project description:

In late September 2022, as part of the release of its Energy and Jobs Plan, the Queensland Government announced that it would invest in a new 200 MW hydrogen-ready gas peaking power station at Kogan Creek, near Chinchilla in Queensland’s Darling Downs region, approximately 260 kilometres west of Brisbane.

The project would provide power initially from gas blended with hydrogen with the future ability to use 100% renewable hydrogen.

Funding for the project would be provided through the Queensland Renewable Energy and Hydrogen Jobs Fund (QREHJF) with its development to be led by CS Energy (a Queensland Government owned energy company).

It is anticipated that the dual fuel capable plant would be operational by 2027.
