EnergyAustralia recognises its Mt Piper power station and Lake Lyell is on the traditional Country of Wiradjuri peoples and respects and acknowledges their continued connection to Country and culture.

We are currently investigating a pumped hydro project at Lake Lyell near Lithgow in NSW. This project proposes to use Lake Lyell as a lower reservoir with a new upper reservoir built on the southern flank of the adjacent Mt Walker.

Preliminary feasibility studies by engineering firm Arup suggest that a pumped hydro project is technically feasible. Click the video link below to see a graphical representation of the project concept design.
