Course details
Distributed energy solutions are playing a key role in supporting the transition of our electricity grids to renewable energy. How can your project, development or operation best benefit and support this transition? How can we ensure the energy transition to renewable energy is fair, equitable and accessible? How will distributed energy opportunities be most efficient and how can the property sector best support these opportunities?

Looking at in front of the meter alternatives, this insights webinar will examine the use of Virtual Power Plants (VPP) to coordinate Distributed Energy Resources (DER) as well as other options and models available to facilitate distributed energy, such as community-based battery storage. We will discuss how the aggregation of DER delivers services to the grid and unlocks value for energy users, with a focus on new community models and the potential unlocked by community scale batteries.

Join us to examine some of Australia’s broad range of DER projects, from local community energy projects to wide metropolitan and state trials. This session will offer you the opportunity to deep dive into some examples and reflect on what the future may look like and how you can contribute.

Key topics to be explored:

What is a virtual power plant and what role can it play for our renewable energy future?
How are community energy models increasing the amount of renewable energy generation and storage that can be installed in electricity distribution networks?
What is the business case for community-based battery storage?
How is the business case for battery storage evolving?
Lessons from current projects and trials
What does this mean for the property sector?
