Building upon the success of the inaugural Future of Neighbourhood Batteries conference, a second event is taking place this November.
The conference will feature speakers from across Australia with sessions on the latest neighbourhood battery research, industry case studies, a government panel discussion and an opportunity to workshop the future of neighbourhood batteries.
The national roll-out of neighbourhood batteries is underway. Through our research talking to Australians we have learnt that desires for equity, resilience, and rapid decarbonisation are dominant in people’s enthusiasm for neighbourhood batteries, and issues of transparency and accountability foremost concerns.
Partnerships are an essential part of informing the roll-out of neighbourhood batteries that are in the best interest of customers. The conference will provide an opportunity for stakeholders and decision makers to inform and learn from one another.
This event is free however attendance is limited and priority will be given to industry professionals, community groups, government employees and researchers working in the field of neighbourhood or community batteries.
Register your interest here. You will be notified of the outcome shortly.
