Western Australia’s (WA) publicly-owned grid operator, Western Power, has announced its largest battery is on its way to Kalbarri. The battery, the biggest utility-scale battery ever to be connected to the Western grid network, departed from Perth today on its way north to the laid-back coastal town.
A new report released by the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) on 31 October has proposed reforms to help protect consumers who choose to go off-grid, making the process safer and more reliable.
The term “microgrid” means different things to different stakeholders. Depending upon whether one is a customer, solution provider, regulator, utility representative, or academic researcher, precisely defining the term “microgrid” may or may not matter. For the end-use customer or solutions provider, providing a label for a specific solution is, in many cases, irrelevant. As long as the distributed energy resource (DER) project serves the needs of the client, what label one attaches to the solution is no longer important.
WA is carving out a global footprint in the renewable energy space with Perth announced as the base of a world-first organisation to accelerate the global development of the microgrid sector…
Across the globe, the energy industry is witnessing increased penetration of distributed generation resources, such as rooftop solar PV, energy storage, and microgrids – which are small-scale versions of a centralised electricity system.
