About these events

Right now, there is a lot of excitement about “community batteries” and their role in the transition to net zero carbon. They can increase peoples’ access to renewable energy, increase energy affordability, and enable more people to install rooftop solar. Community batteries also tackle some of the networks’ most challenging problems like network ‘congestion’ and how to enable more solar exports to the grid.

This session will be facilitated in an ‘interview style’ and the audience will be encouraged to contribute their ideas and ask questions about community batteries. These conversations will inform the project team and shape the next steps of the Yarra community battery trial. Brief presentations to set the scene will be followed by a Q&A with the Yarra community battery trial team.

Guests include Timothy Shue, Communications & Marketing Manager, Yarra Energy Foundation and Chris Wallin, Project Manager, Community Batteries, Yarra Energy Foundation and a representative from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.

The webinar is hosted by the City of Yarra and the Yarra Energy Foundation.

A zoom link and short pre-session survey will be emailed upon registration.
