Smart Batteries for Key Government Buildings

The Smart Batteries for Key Government Buildings initiative was established to support the installation of battery storage at schools, hospitals and other government buildings with rooftop solar systems.

It is currently funding several pilot projects in key government facilities, in partnership with Property NSW, the NSW Ministry of Health and the Department of Education.

Although no additional projects will be funded, these pilot projects will demonstrate the value of battery storage in government facilities. They will generate useful case studies, which will inform the future uptake of battery energy storage solutions across the wider government portfolio.

The NSW Government will continue to lead by example and is funding a number of new initiatives in the renewable energy space through the Net Zero Plan Stage 1: 2020-2030.
