Latrobe Valley: Stronger Together
The Latrobe Valley Microgrid project will test a new approach to energy, developed using blockchain based technology, to create a local energy marketplace. Much like a farmers market for fruit and vegetables, this will allow members of the community to come together to buy and sell renewable electricity that is produced locally. The market will also allow energy customers with flexible energy capacity - for example, those who have batteries or are able to reduce their consumption if required - to provide services that support the network and get paid for doing so. Making energy local will help lower energy bills while allowing the Latrobe valley community to lead the way towards a sustainable energy future.
