The Neighbourhood Battery Initiative provides funding for pilots, trials and demonstrations of neighbourhood-scale battery ownership and operational models.

Victoria’s $10.92 million Neighbourhood Battery Initiative (NBI) supports a range of neighbourhood battery models in Victoria, from feasibility to implementation. Grant programs are being delivered in stages to target funding based on lessons learnt and evolving new technology.

The initiative will help understand what role neighbourhood-scale batteries’ can play in Victoria’s transitioning electricity system, and demonstrate a range of benefits for Victorian communities, energy users and electricity networks.
