Tender Overview


Tender SR23999961 for access to excess Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) capacity in Queensland will be advertised by Energex Limited and Ergon Energy Corporation Limited in the coming days. All relevant documentation (including the scope and response schedules and proposed draft agreement) will be available from EQL's online tendering tool (SAP Ariba). The Tender will close 1 March 2023

Energex and Ergon Energy are inviting Expressions of Interest (EOI) from suitable third parties who are interested in participating with a view to maximising the operational value and generated capacity of twelve 4MW / 8MWh batteries.  Trading excess BESS capacity (up to 48MW / 96MWh) in the national energy market is a contestable electricity service which cannot be undertaken by a distribution network service provider.  Subject to the outcome of a ring-fencing waiver application from the Australian Energy Regulator, Energex and Ergon Energy intend to enter into commercial agreements which will allow third parties to trade any excess BESS capacity.


Respondents must be registered and authorised to trade energy in the National Electricity Market in order to participate.

Respondents are required to register with SAP Ariba to participate in this procurement process. To register your interest in participating:

1. Send an email to marie.gammage@energyq.com.au, quoting Doc23999961 in the subject of your email and including the following details: business name, postal address, ABN, contact name, email address and phone number.

Please note: When receiving the registration email from SAP Ariba, Tenderers only have 24 hours to click on the link included to the email. The Ariba system does not recognise Yahoo, Hotmail or Gmail email domains so plan accordingly when supplying contact email addresses.

2. Respondents must accept the prerequisite Bidder Agreement under the ‘Review and Accept Prerequisites’ tab to ensure all system generated notifications are received. This includes, but is not limited to, Content updates and changes to Event Timing.
