Community Batteries Discussion Group

Opportunity to have your say in a discussion about community batteries in Australia

Participate in a short discussion and we will thank you with a $50 Woolworths gift card

Dear Cootamundra residents,

My name is Hedda and I am a researcher from the Australian National University (ANU) and am looking for (adult) participants to join a small discussion about the potential role of neighbourhood batteries in our energy system.

This is not about a concrete proposal, but more a possible scenario for the future. While some households in Australia are buying batteries for their home, as researchers, we are interested in options for whether we could have batteries that would provide energy for several homes, located in suburbs or towns

The discussion will go for 1 and 1/2 hours. You will be given a $50 Woolworths gift card to thank you for your time. No expertise on energy is required.

Where: Room 1, Cootamundra Library

When: Saturday December 7, 1:30PM to 3:00PM

The project has been given approval by the ANU Human Research Ethics Committee (protocol 2019/241).

If you are interested in participating please email myself

( with the following information: 




Do you own solar panels or solar panels/battery system?

Your location: ie Cootamundra

 We are aiming to get a small group of 6-8 participants with a diversity of experiences and backgrounds. 

The research is funded by the Australian government via the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA).
