This work was funded by the Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action (DEECA) as part of the Neighbourhood Battery Initiative (NBI)

Charge up your “battery” as you travel through the stages of designing, testing, implementing, and evaluating your business model.

Design your model – this includes your business model and the operating model for the battery

Test your model – exploring the assumptions and elements of the model with partners and community, and feasibility testing

Implement your model – a timeline of things you need to attend to as you get closer to getting your battery on the ground (or up a pole!) and details on some key processes such as site selection

Evaluate your model – assessing whether your model is working and whether it’s delivering social and environmental benefits

We acknowledge and respect Victorian Traditional Owners as the original custodians of Victoria’s land and waters, their unique ability to care for Country and deep spiritual connection to it. We honour Elders past and present whose knowledge and wisdom has ensured the continuation of culture and traditional practices.

We are committed to genuinely partner, and meaningfully engage, with Victoria’s Traditional Owners and Aboriginal communities to support the protection of Country, the maintenance of spiritual and cultural practices and their broader aspirations in the 21st century and beyond.

The Battery Storage and Grid Integration Program acknowledges, celebrates and pays our respects to the Ngunnawal and Ngambri people of the Canberra region and to all First Nations Australians on whose traditional lands we meet, work, and whose cultures are among the oldest continuing cultures in human history.
