Snowy 2.0 is one of the biggest hydroelectric projects in Australia

Snowy 2.0 will increase by 2,000 megawatts (MW) the generating capacity of the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Scheme, which currently stands at 4,100 MW. It will also triple Snowy Hydro’s pumping capabilities. Snowy Hydro supplies the National Electricity Market at times of peak demand, as more renewable energy sources enter the country’s grid, hydro power will help keep the lights on when the wind is not blowing or the sun is not shining.
