Endeavour Energy Servicing Update
Endeavour Energy is seeking updated project information from developers to help them in their understanding of upcoming needs. Contact Andrew Hardy to provide feedback.
Endeavour have just completed an update of their 10 year growth load forecast which is updated each summer and winter.
- Nowra Bomaderry: a network strategy was recently completed for this area. They are looking to invest in a new transmission station on northern side of river, and a zoned substation in Cambewarra area. The property unit is investigating suitable parcels of land.
- West Lake Illawarra: a battery energy storage system was installed in April in a trial project aimed at delaying more significant capital expenditure. The battery is charged in off peak times and used to assist peak loading, this should help the local zoned substation last longer. A new West Dapto zoned substation is planned to be delivered in 2025; ongoing modelling will confirm final timing. Endeavour are currently negotiating for land and hope secure a site by early 2021. They are starting to see some capacity strain at West Dapto and are investigating possible re-rating of some lines to help maintain capacity for longer.
- Calderwood: planning to position a mobile zone substation (semi trailer transformer and switch gear) in second half 2021 to offload Albion Park substation.
