Distributed energy resourcesProject Project Converge ACT Distributed Energy Resources Demonstration Pilot
This report outlines insights shared by stakeholders (or intermediaries) working in the area of distributed energy resources, in relation to the emerging application of dynamic operating envelopes, and possible opportunities for shared operating envelopes in Australia.
This report provides an initial opportunity to outline insights shared by stakeholders (or intermediaries) working in the area of distributed energy resources (DER), in relation to the emerging application of dynamic operating envelopes (DOEs), and possible opportunities for ‘shaped’ operating envelopes (SOEs) in Australia. Social research is being conducted as part of Project Converge as SOEs are being developed, to progress understanding of social aspects of DOEs in their early days of application and SOEs as a concept for future application. There is currently little social research undertaken on DOE or SOE solutions. From a wealth of insights shared by intermediaries through interviews and a Converge team meeting, this first report relates intermediary opinions of DOEs and SOEs and implications about intermediary roles related to operating envelopes as they scale.
