System security and reliabilityProject Project EDGE (Energy Demand and Generation Exchange)
This Lessons Learnt Report provides an update on the progress, preliminary findings and lessons learnt to-date on Project Energy Demand and Generation Exchange (Project EDGE).
Project EDGE has entered the operational phase of the trial. Field tests and various research activities are underway to build the evidence base on the most efficient approach to implementing a distributed energy resources (DER) Marketplace that benefits all consumers and industry. The field trial and research activities are testing the core functions of a DER Marketplace that supports the efficient and scalable integration of DER into electricity markets and systems. These functions are wholesale services, local services, and scalable data exchange.
Analysis from the field trial and other complementary research activities such as the consumer insights studies, techno-economic modelling and cost benefit analyses will facilitate the development of insights against research questions and hypotheses. Project EDGE has begun to build the evidence base to inform current and future regulatory reform, market design, and business strategies and investment decisions.
