BE Power undertakes greenfield development and construction of renewable infrastructure projects with primary focus on energy power plants across the Australian National Electricity Market (NEM) and the Northern Territory. Having designed multiple Australian projects using solar, wind, gas co-generation & pumped hydro including our flagship project ‘Big-T’.
The Big-T Pumped Hydro Project is designed to produce 400MW and has high electrical efficiency. It can sustain 4,000MWh of generation in a single cycle. Its primary purpose is to aid the decentralization of the NEM. By supporting the expansion of asynchronous renewable energy sources, mainly solar and wind, Big-T seeks to replace NEM’s older coal-powered plants. This aligns with the Queensland Government’s goal of achieving 50% renewable energy generation.
