Why come together?

Sharing knowledge effectively helps to accelerate the development and uptake of renewable energy. Guided by this, ARENA brought together over 60 stakeholders from state and territory governments, market bodies and industry organisations to share knowledge on Energy Storage Systems (ESS) and Virtual Power Plants (VPP). The workshop was held in Canberra across two days on 11 and 12 February 2019. Day one provided insights into state and territory initiatives, energy market reform initiatives, and VPP functional requirements. Day two explored the customer experience of VPPs, as well as data collection and platforms for national industry development.

This summary presents the key takeaways and discussion points from the two-day workshop. While ARENA works to ensure that knowledge is shared effectively from its projects, due to the sensitive nature of some information presented, Chatham House Rules was applied to this workshop. We have endeavoured to seek approval, and indicate a reference point, to as much knowledge as possible. At the back of this summary note, you will find a number of presentations from the day.
