Green Star FAQs

FAQ F-00329
Is there an alternative method to demonstrate compliance with the Active Generation and Storage Systems pathway?


An alternative method of achieving compliance with the 'Active Generation and Storage Systems' pathway under the Grid Resilience credit from Green Star Buildings v1 is where a network grid operator has the remote ability to stop the export of on-site electricity generated to the grid during peak solar generation periods.

This is on the condition that the excess electricity being generated by the building continues to be consumed, stored, or transferred energy through a micro-grid to other buildings.

All other compliance requirements are as per the submission guidelines.
