RP3043: Beyond WGV: Community Battery Storage

Project leader name: 
Prof. Peter Newman, Curtin University of Technology
Project status: 
Project period: 
05/2017 to 12/2018

Beyond WGV builds on the battery storage integration and commercial/governance model research in the CRCLCL projects RP3033: Mainstreaming Low Carbon Housing - The White Gum Valley Living LaboratoryRP3009: High Performance Housing - Monitoring, Evaulating and Communicating the Journey, and RP2006: FredZED - Mainstreaming Low Carbon Housing in WA.

The new work will upscale the findings of these projects to district scale, in a redevelopment project in the City of Fremantle. District scale provides a new economic opportunity for delivering community battery storage by capturing value from reduced head works, diversified load balancing, and economies of scale.  It is the ‘next stage’ that is being sought by agencies and politicians across Australia.
