New Battery for the Island

New Battery for the Island

AusNet Services and Mondo are pleased to announce the proposal for Phillip Island’s first battery energy storage system. The plans for the Phillip Island Community Energy Storage System (PICESS) will offer greater reliability in electricity supply for the Island, especially during peak holiday periods and also provide a new world of renewable energy opportunities.

AusNet and Mondo are focused on innovative new technologies to provide network reliability and resiliency for communities. Mondo won the right to deliver this ambitious solution for AusNet through a competitive tender process.

It is anticipated the PICESS 10MWh Lithium-Ion Phosphate battery will form the foundation for a future energy ecosystem of locally generated electricity and support the 100% renewable energy targets and zero-carbon plans for both the Bass Coast Shire Council and the community.
