Amp Energy’s Establishment of the Renewable Energy Hub of South Australia

White & Case LLP has advised Amp Energy on the deal.

Amp Energy (Amp) completed the establishment of the Renewable Energy Hub of South Australia, a portfolio of large scale integrated Solar PV, Wind and Battery Energy Storage (BESS) assets in South Australia, Australia.

The portfolio, which Amp acquired from Australian renewable energy consultants EPS Energy, is made up of three large solar PV projects totaling more than 1,300MW of solar capacity with up to 540MW of BESS capacity, and will feed a planned new green hydrogen hub at Port Spencer. The three projects include the 636MW Robertson solar project, the 336MW Bungama project, and the 388MW Yoorndoo Ilga project. 

The Renewable Energy Hub of South Australia is viewed as fundamental in integrating renewable energy storage assets and building capacity in a state which is undergoing a rapid energy transition, and it has been warmly welcomed by the South Australian government. 

Founded in 2009, Amp is an established high-growth, global renewables platform entrenched in the world’s leading power markets at scale.

The White & Case team that advised Amp on the transaction was led by partner Joel Rennie (Sydney; Picture), with support from local partner Mark Montag (Sydney), counsel Andrea Reeves (Melbourne) and associates Stephen Carlton, Kirsten Sugden and Shafinas Djuanda (all Melbourne).
