Why Australia is a Hot Spot for Virtual Power Plant Innovation

(And why the rest of the world should take heed) 

Australia has long been at the forefront of the migration to distributed energy resources (DERs). From its initial focus on remote microgrids, Australia is now continuing its role as an energy innovator with a new focus on grid-connected DERs such as rooftop solar PV. 


This new white paper explores the reasons why Navigant Research regards Australia as an “incubator and a laboratory” — where DER opportunities from remote microgrids to virtual power plants (VPPs) and distributed energy resource management systems (DERMS) — can be tested, validated and commercialized.
