Regional Australia Microgrid Pilots Program

Announced in the 2020-21 Federal Budget and administered by ARENA, RAMPP is a $50 million six year program that aims to improve the resilience and reliability of power supply for regional and remote communities. RAMPP builds upon the Australian Government’s $50.4 million Regional and Remote Communities Reliability Fund (RRCRF), which funded feasibility studies for regional and remote communities to investigate deployment of local microgrid technologies.

Funding is available over 6 years, or until funds are exhausted. RAMPP is expected to provide grants between $1 and $5 million. Applicants seeking more than $5 million will need to demonstrate exemplary merit with very broad industry benefit.
