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.”
