Renewable energy network and marketplace trial a first for Wangaratta

WANGARATTA is set to become a centerpiece of an exciting national energy market trial which kicks off next month.

Wangaratta Landcare and Sustainability (WLS) in collaboration with, and sponsorship from the energy provider Mondo, kicks off the local launch of Project EDGE. This is a community virtual power plant trial seeking to lay the foundations for the full integration of renewable electricity into the national electricity market.

EDGE is a partnership between Mondo, the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) and AusNet Services to undertake a 3-year trial, partly funded by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), with a focus on Victoria’s Hume region.

As the principal aggregator on the trial, Mondo will subsidise batteries for homes and businesses in Wangaratta to develop ways of including those batteries within the trial, to secure more reliable and economic access to electricity for the owners.

This will create a more stable electricity network and assist the electricity market to transition to include renewable electricity.

Interested homeowners and businesses are invited to attend the project launch at the Wangaratta Performing Arts Centre on Wednesday, December 1 at 6:45pm. Catering will be provided for those attendees.
