The Peak Demand Reduction using Solar and Storage project has successfully demonstrated a reduction in peak demand as an alternative solution for deferring network augmentation.

Aspects that UE investigated during 2017/2018 and 2018/2019 are as below:

  • Developed operating modes for the systems including automated control algorithms;
  • Investigated business models that could facilitate the deployment of storage to address network issues; and
  • The outcomes from the dispatch events were complemented by ongoing market research in order to facilitate the provision of non-network solutions to system planners where network constraints are identified, and to feed into ongoing asset strategy development regarding the application of energy storage in a network context.

The final report provides full details including an economic assessment, the lessons learnt and recommendations for the future.
