Plug and play on the way for renewable connections
A more consumer-friendly approach to connect renewables to the grid is the ambition of the new suite of guidelines being developed by Energy Networks Australia.
Standardising and streamlining the connection of next generation technology has been identified as a key priority by networks, customers and industry stakeholders.
The Distributed Energy Resources National Connection Guidelines will provide a consistent set of protocols to connect and integrate a range of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) with Australia’s electricity networks.
Energy Networks Australia’s CEO Andrew Dillon said that better facilitating customer owned resources into the grid is essential.
