The future is now: Community batteries as a climate change response – CPP July Webinar

26 Jul 2022
2:00pm - 3:00pm

Join us on Tuesday the 26th of July at 2:00pm AEST as we hear from the City of Yarra and the Yarra Energy Foundation take us through the key learnings, barriers and solutions of the implementation journey of the recently launched community battery in the City of Yarra.

Our presenters will discuss how community batteries support Council’s climate change goals and commitments, their role in the implementation process up to this point as well as in moving forward, as well as other key energy innovation and transformation initiatives that Council is supporting.

We’ll learn about:

  • What the community battery is,
  • How it works and lowers emissions,
  • The prospects for scale and replicability
  • And the role for local governments in supporting a community battery
