ITP Renewables in conjunction with the Australian National University (ANU), UNSW Canberra, Evoenergy and the ACT government have announced the construction of a new lab to facilitate rapid prototyping and testing of different combinations of new control, monitoring and communication systems for use with distributed energy and storage solutions, at the ANU’s Acton campus in Canberra.
As widely reported in RenewEconomy, a large number of consumer-side, network and market trials of distributed energy resources (DERs) have taken place or are underway in Australia. The vast majority of these trials are being conducted bilaterally – with a single product or service provider and a single Distribution Network Service Provider (DNSP).
While these trials are important, they commonly involve bespoke products or services being integrated into one specific DNSP’s control system with one DER type.
