Present project

The Melbourne Grid Battery is being developed by Lumea 20km West of Melbourne’s CBD and will contribute to optimising the use of renewable energy in Victoria and across the National Electricity Market.

Energy Supplied


The Melbourne Grid Battery is currently being developed by Lumea and will be located at the Deer Park Energy Hub and substation, a key source of electricity supply for metropolitan Melbourne. It will be one of the few batteries in the National Electricity Market to be located on the load side, close to a source of high energy demand.

Lumea, which sits as part of Transgrid group, has a substantial land asset at Deer Park with available bays and adequate network capacity. Transgrid is the transmission network service provider for NSW and the ACT, as well as a declared transmission system operator in Victoria.

Australia’s energy transition is seeing significant change in the energy landscape in the shift to renewable energy, and the infrastructure that is required to get there. Batteries are playing an important role supporting this transition.

The Melbourne Grid Battery will also optimise the use of renewable energy generation in Victoria and across the National Energy Market by providing energy storage services and supplying energy when most needed, and may also offer services to support grid reliability and system support.

Lumea’s Bid Director for Melbourne Grid Battery, Helen Gough says,
“Lumea believes electrification is the way forward and renewables are essential, which means we need storage.  The faster we can provide clean firming capacity, the better we can help speed the transition and grid batteries can provide significant benefits to consumers.”
