Battery Storage Information Night for Gawler


Following the recent state-wide electricity blackout and with South Australia‘s 16c per kilowatt-hour (kWh) solar feed-in tariff for excess solar energy dropping to 6.8c/kWh from the 1st October, many in the community will be looking for options for the storage and use of their excess solar.

To help answer these questions, Transition Gawler (with support from the Town of Gawler) will be hosting a Battery and Energy Information Night on Monday the 31st of October, 2016 at the Gawler Sports and Community Centre.

Zen Energy’s Chairman, Professor Ross Garnaut, will provide a  “Post Paris” debrief and discuss the opportunities for South Australia, as well as an introduction to the latest Energy Storage Technologies for on-grid and off grid options.

Professor Garnaut is known as the author of the Garnaut Climate Change Review under the Rudd-Gillard Governments, which was established to investigate the impacts of climate change on the Australian economy.

“This is such an exciting and timely event for the people of Gawler and South Australia”, said Kathryn Warhurst, Chair of Transition Gawler.  “We are interested in opportunities for community storage and keen to learn more about the opportunities available presently and in the future”.

In addition to keynote speaker Professor Garnaut, other speakers from Zen Energy and other Adelaide energy and storage businesses will discuss different battery technologies. The event will also allow for people to ask questions and learn about the economics, social and environmental implications of electricity storage.
