A Workshop about Energy Storage and Microgrids for Community Energy Groups was held in Melbourne. Five representatives from Healesville CoRE were at the Workshop and you can get an idea of the value of the Workshop from three of the Presentations which you can access below.

Microgrids (what? why? how?) were explained to show how they differ from the regular grid that most people work though. Advantages such as cheaper electricity, sharing solar energy and batteries, independent operating when the main grid is down, were addressed.
The Microgrid DemonstrationInitiative (MDI) is an initiative of the Government’s Renewable EnergyAction Plan (REAP). This is information about the government grant program that made available up to $10m in fundingE
