Distributed energy resourcesProject N/A
This DER Technology Integration report is a consultation paper prepared for ARENA by Farrierswier and GridWise Energy, which presents a draft DER technology integration functional framework for comment.
1. What this project is seeking to do
The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) is working with Farrierswier and GridWise Energy Solutions to develop a State of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) Technology Integration Report. This project will create a functional framework for DER technology integration, that will be used to conduct a maturity assessment. It will then prepare a baseline report to better understand the contributions made towards DER technology integration by around 50 ARENA and non-ARENA projects, programs and trials. This technical integration focus will recognise but exclude the analysis of broader market, grid and customer regulation projects already being considered by other parties.
ARENA intends that the functional framework and maturity assessment will be applied annually in future to track progress towards effective DER integration across Australia.
