Transition of Council’s Fleet

The challenge with renewables is storage for power on demand. Batteries, Pumped Hydro and even Hydrogen are storage options.   For many years we have had peak and off peak electricity. Accordingly the feed in Tarrif is a premium at Peak Time.   PV generates during the day - in rain or shine. Wind generates when wind blows.   Feeding into the Grid at Peak times is lucrative. Reposit Power and V2G offer the possibility of charging batteries in a fixed location or in your car when electricity is cheap and feeding it into Grid when tariff is good ANU V2G project Climate Change and Electric Vehicle Submissions to Budget Transition of Council’s Fleet - June 17, 2020 Council Meeting 10 March 2020 Vehicle to Grid
