About the proposed Borumba Project  

The proposed Borumba Pumped Hydro Project is a 2,000 MW pumped hydro energy storage system at Lake Borumba, located near Imbil, west of the Sunshine Coast. The proposed Project will help deliver Queensland’s clean energy future and generate significant opportunities for regional economies and jobs. 

In June 2023, the Queensland Government committed $6 billion to the progress the Project, subject to regulatory approvals.
