Overview

The Loddon Mallee region covers an area of nearly 59,000 square kilometers in the North West of Victoria. It follows the Murray River from Mildura to Echuca, and down through the goldfields to the Macedon Ranges. There are a number of renewable energy projects already in operation across the region such as the Gannawarra Solar Farm, currently the largest combined battery and solar power plant in Australia. There are also many community groups working on projects from pumped hydro to bioenergy.

The Loddon Mallee Renewable Energy Roadmap is working with individuals, businesses, communities, and government to build a vision for the region in the renewable energy transition and to capitalise on the transformation of our electricity system.
