$13 bn investment, 15,000 hectares of land: What will go in creating the world’s largest solar farm - EntornoInteligente

New Delhi: Australian technology billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes has recently announced that he would be investing in Singapore-based Sun Cable to create the world’s largest solar farm . While the co-founder of the software company Atlassian is yet to reveal how much he is going to invest, the project would enable Singapore to get away from its reliance on imported liquid natural gas, and thereby achieve its greenhouse gas emissions goals. Here are a few interesting numbers of the project: Sun Cable is not the only mega-renewable energy export project on the drawing board in Australia. The 15GW Asian Renewable Energy Hub in Western Australia’s Pilbara has been under development since the year 2014. $13 billion is the estimated valuation of Sun Cable’s proposed solar farm. The company aims to develop the world’s largest solar energy farm to power Singapore from the Australian desert. 3 gigawatts of energy will be transmitted to meet Singapore’s future electricity supply. 10 gigawatts is the total capacity of the solar farm when it is completely operational. It would be supported by 20-30 gigawatt-hours of storage facility. 3,800 km long high voltage direct current cable (overhead transmission lines) will be used to transmit the power to Singapore from the Australian desert. 15,000 hectares of land near Tennant Creek in Australia’s Northern Territory will cover the solar farm. That’s the area of estimated 7,500 football fields. 1/5 of Singapore’s electricity supply will be sourced from this project by Sun Cable. The company has not yet gone public on the economics of the project. 2023 is the year when the construction is estimated to be initiated and the commercial operation is expected to start by 2027. 1,000 jobs are expected to be created during the construction phase of the project, followed by 300 potential operational jobs.
