The Tallawarra B Project

Tallawarra power station is on the traditional Country of the Dharawal peoples. EnergyAustralia respects and acknowledges their continued connection to Country, culture and community.  

New South Wales requires fast start gas fired generation to balance the energy system and we have responded with the Tallawarra B project. The project is the development of a fast-start open cycle power station, which in peak periods will deliver reliable power to an additional 150,000 New South Wales homes. Its construction will create 250 jobs.

Located on the shored of Lake Illawarra at EnergyAustralia's existing Tallawarra power station, Tallawarra B will be Australia’s first peaking power station to be powered by a blend of gas and green hydrogen with direct emissions offset. The Tallawarra B project will be ready for the summer of 2023-24, around the time of the scheduled retirement of the Lddell power station.

With its fast-start flexible capacity, the Tallawarra B project will play a vital role in maintaining system security, complementing renewables coming into the system, and providing reliable power to customers in New South Wales.
