Site Tour 1 - REFCL Bushfire Prevention & Phillip Island Community Energy Storage System

Tuesday, 14 Nov 2023
8.30am - 5pm

About $1B has been invested by Victorian electricity distribution businesses to install Rapid Earth Fault Current Limiter (REFCL) technology to prevent powerline faults starting bushfires. This technology was developed in the wake of the devasting Black Saturday bushfires and has proven to prevent bushfires and save lives. Delegates will travel to AusNet Service’s Lang Lang zone substation to see the equipment firsthand and hear from the engineers who have designed, installed and operate it. This will be followed by lunch at San Remo before traveling to Phillip Island for a guided tour of the Phillip Island Community Energy Storage System (PICESS). This $10M battery system consists of a 10MWh lithium-ion phosphate battery supplied by Hitachi Energy and can provide a peak output of 5MW to supply energy during peak periods, supports the storage of renewable energy and reduces reliance on seasonally added diesel generators required to support peak demand for the island.


Conveniently, all payments can be made online using Visa and Mastercard. Please note that all costs mentioned above are quoted in Australian dollars (AUD) and include the Goods and Services Tax (GST).
