Planning for battery energy storage facilities in Victoria
Vital for our economy and our standard of living
While renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power are playing an increasing role in Victoria's electricity generation, fossil fuels remain the major source of Victoria's electricity and currently account for more than 85 per cent of Victoria's electricity generation.
Gas is an essential part of the transition to a low carbon economy and currently plays a limited but important role in Victorian electricity generation.
Energy efficiency can help reduce our environmental impact and make energy more affordable.
We are helping the community save money and energy through initiatives like the Victorian Energy Upgrades, Home Energy Assist, and Boosting Productivity programs, and through online tools like the Energy Calculator and interactive Energy Efficient House.
There are programs to make clean energy more accessible and affordable, too.
Victoria's renewable energy is generated by harnessing the sun's radiation or heat, the wind, the tides or heat stored underground to make electricity and heat. Generating electricity from renewable energy sources produces very little carbon pollution.
Victoria has very reliable electricity supplies, but sometimes power outages can occur.
The department develops legislation and regulation to ensure that Victoria's energy system is efficient, reliable, affordable and environmentally conscious.
