26 October 2015: Construction of a $140 million combined wind and solar energy park is expected to begin within 12 months, following agreement between local renewable energy company Windlab Limited (Windlab) and a major Japanese partner.

Windlab will partner with the Eurus Energy Holdings Corporation in a 50/50 joint venture to build the Kennedy Energy Park plant, in what is the first large scale hybrid solar/wind plant constructed in Australia.

PRIME Minister Tony Abbott’s dislike of wind farms could jeopardise a $2.5 billion renewable energy project in North Queensland which its proponents say would provide cheaper and more sustainable electricity than a new coal-fired power station.

However, the Coalition’s Townsville-based MP, Ewen Jones, said he would be willing to argue the case for Hughenden’s Kennedy Energy Park if it was “the best way forward”.

Private company Windlab is promoting development of a 1300 megawatt wind and solar farm in the Flinders Shire, 300km west of Townsville.
