Electricity storage batteries in Australian homes and businesses are playing an increasingly important role in delivering a resilient, cost-effective and clean electricity grid.
In the past year, 6500 batteries were installed compared with just 500 from the year before (source: SunWiz). Price reductions of up to 50 per cent occurred over the same period. These trends are set to continue with Morgan Stanley predicting one million batteries in households by 2020.
Reposit Power's submission describes in detail why consumer-owned batteries are important and how Government can encourage uptake in a way that grows a vibrant export-oriented industry.
