Latrobe Valley

AusNet has announced that construction on the Latrobe Valley Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) project has commenced.

Victorian Minister for Energy and Resources, Lily D’Ambrosio, attended the official commencement of the project, which is to be delivered by AusNet and Tilt Renewables. 

AusNet Chief Executive Officer, David Smales, said the project is another great example of how AusNet and delivery partners such as Tilt Renewables are working together to drive a more sustainable future in Victoria.

“AusNet’s transmission expertise, local knowledge and experience delivering grid connections and transmission assets means we are ideally placed to deliver this supporting infrastructure.”

“We have a long-standing presence in the Latrobe Valley community, supporting customers and stakeholders via energy connections and throughout our distribution network, and more broadly through the energy transition,” Mr Smales said.

AusNet has worked with Tilt Renewables to successfully deliver connections for other projects, such as the Salt Creek and Dundonnell Wind Farm projects, and the company said it looks forward to working with Tilt on the Latrobe Valley BESS.

AusNet’s connection works are due to be completed by December 2024, with the BESS to be energised in early 2025.
