To be able to make improvements to the network and power train services along the Hurstbridge line, a new Energy Storage System will be installed near existing rail infrastructure on VicTrack land in Diamond Creek.

An Energy Storage System (ESS) acts as an ‘off-grid’ system where otherwise wasted electricity generated when a train brakes, is supplied back into the network.

Substations and Energy Storage Systems are integral to Melbourne’s train network. They convert and supply electricity to operate trains, signals and communication equipment.
