Australian Standards to unlock our distributed electricity future

Australia’s energy system will require a thorough overhaul of Australian Standards to deal with transformations in distributed energy, smart grids and empowered customers.

Energy Networks Association Chief Executive Officer, John Bradley, said Standards would be critical for the effective integration of distributed energy resources into electricity networks to support customer choice and more efficient services.

“With rapid changes in technology, improvements must be made to the current suite of Australian Standards to leverage the full value of distributed energy resources,” Mr Bradley said.
