The Dalvui BESS would improve the reliability of the electricity network by storing power for use during peak periods

Project Details

The Dalvui Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) will improve the reliability of the electricity network for people living in and around Terang. Backing up power during times of low demand, it will release electricity to the wholesale market during peak periods. This will better enable retailers to meet the needs of their local customers.  Further, it will also act as a  backup supply of power during network faults, improving the reliability of supply for people living in and around Terang.

The Project would be located just east of the existing Terang Terminal Station, within the Southwest Victoria Renewable Energy Zone. The site is located halfway between the Terang township and the Terang Harness Track, north of the Princes Highway and the railway line.

Tilt Renewables has lodged a planning permit application for the Project. To find out more about the planning permit application see below.

Planning and Environment

Tilt Renewables has lodged a planning permit application for the Dalvui BESS with the Minister for Planning. As part of the planning permit application, we have addressed environmental considerations relevant to the Project’s location and nature of the BESS development, including:

  • Bushfire
  • Cultural Heritage
  • Environmental Management
  • Flora and Fauna
  • Hazard
  • Hydrology / Surface Water
  • Land use Planning
  • Landscape and Visual Impact
  • Noise
  • Traffic

On 16 November 2020, Planning Scheme Amendment VC192 was gazetted, making the Minister for Planning the Responsible Authority for BESS Projects of this nature. We are committed to ongoing consultation with Corangamite Shire Council as the Project progresses and have sought their feedback on our approach to the planning permit application and accompanying environmental assessments.

The planning permit application and all supporting environmental assessments can be viewed below, and via the Victorian Government Planning Portal.


Tilt Renewables is committed to open and honest dialogue with all stakeholders. We aim to build and enhance community acceptance and trust in all projects and in the renewable energy industry as a whole.

We are committed to giving back to and enhancing our host communities by sharing the benefits of all our projects, including the Dalvui BESS.

We are investigating how best to share the benefits of the Project with the community, with a focus on education and training programs.

The Project would create up to 150 direct and 240 indirect jobs during construction and approximately 7 direct and 20 indirect jobs during operations.
