The Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, the Hon Lily D'Ambrosio, announced the Victorian Governments' $25 million Energy Storage Initiative in early 2017.
The Energy Storage Initiative will support projects that deliver large-scale energy storage, to enhance the reliability of our grid and unlock economic growth in areas experiencing network constraints.
