This guiding document sits alongside the Regional Australia’s Renewables (RAR) data specification; which is evolving as a best practice guide on monitoring system performance.
Effective knowledge sharing is central to ARENA achieving its objectives of improving the competitiveness and increasing the supply of renewable energy in Australia.
To assist ARENA with its Knowledge Sharing activities, particularly with respect to development of aggregate program assessments, these requirements and specifications are to be incorporated into Knowledge Sharing Plans. The specifications set out in this document and accompanying spreadsheet to fill in are aimed at describing the minimum standard to reach. The data requirements are intended to reflect current best business practices in renewable energy sectors, and benefit both project proponents and ARENA alike.
