UK: Gwynt Glas Offshore Wind Farm – Celtic Sea

DP Energy Ireland is developing a 300MW floating offshore wind energy project located between the West Wales and South West coastline.

Site research and detailed studies have resulted in the identification of an area of interest. This site is being investigated by remote aerial surveys for marine mammal and bird activity.

DP Energy has started engagement with key stakeholders and is commencing wide consultation with all interested parties. Consultations will include the offshore area which is approximately 70km from the shore.

A project website is currently under development and will be made available here once complete.

Australia: Callide Wind Farm – Queensland

The proposed Callide Wind Farm project has the potential for an installed wind turbine capacity of some 430MW and is located approximately 22km north north-east of Biloela and 75km west south-west of Gladstone.”

This project is in the early stages of the development process. Consultation with key stakeholders, resource modelling, and site assessments have commenced.

Further details can be found at the project website here.

Canada: Prairie Solar Park – Alberta

The proposed 25MW distribution system connected solar PV project is located near Milo in Alberta. The project will be developed on a greenfield site. An option to lease the land was executed with the land owner in August 2018.

Next steps:

  • The Development Permit Application is targeted for submission in Q2 2020 and the Alberta Utility Commission (AUC) application process will be followed shortly thereafter.

Australia: Walker – NSW

The Project is in New South Wales, Australia, approx. 80km from Liddell Power Station which is closing in 2022. There is a 132kV Transmission Line 12km to the east.
Preliminary Environmental Assessment (PEA) drafted.

Next steps:

  • Submitting PEA for scoping to planners
  • Negotiating connection agreement
  • Public consultation
  • Commencing wind monitoring and two years surveys for baseline environmental assessments.

Australia: Edith – NSW

The Project is located in NSW west of Sydney, with National Parks & State Forest to the East. Jenolan Caves to east.
Desk based constraints assessment and site visit carried out. The Forestry Company has agreed Edith to follow Adjungbilly template.

Next steps:

  • Ecological surveys and wind monitoring

Australia: Adjungbilly – NSW

The Project is based in NSW west of Canberra. It is surrounded by state forest (commercial) and bisected with a 132kV transmission line (purple). Low population density.
Site visits carried out. Proposal submitted to the private forestry company. Review of terms and revenue complete.

Next steps:

  • Ecological surveys and wind monitoring.

Canada: Barlow Solar Park- Alberta

DP Energy is developing two adjacent solar projects on brownfield sites in Southeast Calgary with a combined generation capacity of 64 MW.

Barlow Solar Park is the first of two adjacent solar projects being developed in Southeast Calgary on capped phosphogypsum stacks owned by Viterra Inc. Solar power generation offers a productive use of the sites that would otherwise have limited development potential. The projects will use a ballasted foundation system to ensure the integrity of the stacks are maintained and the clear, level surfaces of the sites offer an excellent installation platform.

Land Use Redesignation and Development Permit approvals were granted by the City of Calgary for the project in 2019 and the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) approval followed in 2020.

Canada: Deerfoot Solar Park – Alberta

DP Energy is developing two adjacent solar projects on brownfield sites in Southeast Calgary with a combined generation capacity of 64 MW.

Deerfoot Solar is the second of two adjacent solar projects being developed in Southeast Calgary on capped phosphogypsum stacks owned by Viterra Inc. Solar power generation offers a productive use of the sites that would otherwise have limited development potential. The projects will use a ballasted foundation system to ensure the integrity of the stacks are maintained and the clear, level surfaces of the sites offer an excellent installation platform.

Land Use Redesignation and Development Permit Applications were submitted to the City of Calgary on January 29, 2021.

Australia: Desailly Renewable Energy Park – Queensland

The Desailly project forms a sizeable combined Solar and Wind energy hybrid project in the north of Queensland comprising some 250MW of solar PV and 300MW of wind turbines. It is expected that the project will incorporate significant battery storage in order to optimise utilisation of the grid export route.

The wind and solar resource, and potential grid export options are under evaluation whilst further ecological surveys are underway and planned.

Canada: Saamis Solar – Alberta

Saamis Solar is a 325 MW solar power project under development on an approximately 1,600-acre site within the city limits of Medicine Hat.

Medicine Hat boasts more days of sunshine per year (330!) than any other city in Canada and the Saamis Solar Par  project is situated in the north-eastern industrial sector of the city. The c.1600-acre site includes a large area of capped phosphogypsum stack and solar power generation offers a productive use of an area that would otherwise have limited development potential. The large, clear and relatively level surface of the cap is ideal for solar panel installation and the project will use a ballasted foundation system to ensure the integrity of the stacks capping is maintained.

A Development Permit for the project was granted in August 2021 and Pending regulatory approvals, construction activities are expected to begin in 2023 with a goal to be fully operational in 2024.
