Vector Energy is showcasing developments in energy storage technology, including the Tesla Powerpack, in a series of roadshow events across Australia.
Vector Energy hosted the first roadshow in Sydney, which was launched by NSW Minister for Industry, Resources and Energy, Anthony Roberts.
Throughout November and early December 2016, roadshow events will be held in Cairns, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
“Partnerships such as Vector Energy and Tesla Powerpack which is showcased today, are unlocking new opportunities for innovation and investment, and promising to deliver immense economic and environmental benefits to consumers and businesses,” Mr Roberts said.
Vector’s Chief Executive, Simon Mackenzie, said the roadshow is an opportunity to highlight the company’s exploration of sustainable, renewable, low-emission forms of energy that provide greater choice and autonomy for customers in managing their energy needs.
Through this new technology, Vector is transforming the way it manages its electricity networks.
Recently, Vector opened the largest grid-scale Tesla Powerpack battery storage system in the Southern Hemisphere to be integrated into a public electricity network at its Glen Innes substation in Auckland, New Zealand.
In Australia, Vector Energy is looking for opportunities in the commercial, utility and off-grid sectors, to partner with businesses to create a new energy future. Vector’s fast-growing metering business has also installed its first smart meters in Australia.
