Project Overview

Did you know that the Hepburn Shire has already reached 43% renewables? This is a great step toward our community's 100% renewables target for 2025, but we’ll likely need more grid capacity or storage to get there.

That's why the Central Victorian Greenhouse Alliance (CVGA) has partnered with the Hepburn Shire Council and Hepburn Energy to investigate community batteries across the Shire. This project, called Community Sparks, is part of the State Government’s Neighbourhood Battery Initiative.

As part of this project, Hepburn Energy has now completed a social feasibility study for the Hepburn Shire, which you can read below.

Next Steps

The next step of the project is to deliver community education resources so local people can get informed about their energy system and the potential role of community batteries.
