Energy Magazine, Other, 27/05/2021, Imogen Hartmann
SA Power Networks has recorded successful results on its 21-month Advanced Virtual Power Plant (VPP) Grid Integration Project trial, which involved 1,000 South Australian households with solar and batteries. VPPs are expected to play an increasingly important role in the energy system as the transition to renewable energy continues. In this world-first trial, SA Power Networks worked with Tesla and CSIRO to show how VPP performance can be as much as doubled using innovative new approaches to grid integration, unlocking greater value for customers and VPP operators.
