Network Batteries

A network battery is connected to our distribution network and is designed to manage energy flows to optimise the network. By installing network batteries, we can defer capital spend to upgrade network capacity. Energy can be traded on the National Electricity Market.

Our first trial network battery is located at Sovereign Hills, near Port Macquarie on NSW’s Mid-North Coast - the first on our 737,000 square kilometre network.

Developed in partnership with AGL, the 2MWh Sovereign Hills Network Battery will help increase the amount of rooftop solar generation local customers can export to the network.
