Report: ARENA Insights Spotlight: Rheem Smart Network (PDF 407KB)
Through the Rheem SA Smart Network project, Combined Energy Technologies (CET), SA Power Networks and interested retailers are demonstrating behind-the-meter device orchestration. We sat down with Malcom McEwan, CEO of CET to find out how the project rewards customers for supporting the local network through the use of home energy management systems.
The Rheem Smart Network project is demonstrating innovative approaches to flexible orchestration of behind-the-meter (BTM) distributed energy resource (DER) devices, such as rooftop solar, residential batteries, pool pumps and smart hot water systems.
In collaboration with Combined Energy Technologies (CET), SA Power Networks and a number of interested retailers, the Smart Network project is developing low-cost and scalable technologies that rewards customer participation for supporting the local network through the use of Home Energy Management Systems (HEMS).
