(credit: CHRISTOF STACHE/AFP/Getty Images ) In September, South Australia confirmed a plan to set up an AU$100 million (USD $72 million) fund to help households purchase home energy storage batteries. Households could receive subsidies of up to AU$6,000 (USD $4,300) on a purchase of a battery that would store electricity either from a solar-panel system or from the South Australian grid. The electricity could then be used during an emergency or a blackout.

This week, German battery maker Sonnen started producing batteries at an old GM Holden factory in Elizabeth, South Australia . Sonnen has long experience in the home energy storage market, deploying batteries for German households before Tesla announced its Powerwall.
