Empowering households to be part of the ACT's electricity market
Over the next 2 years, Project Converge will develop capabilities for ACT residents to use their home solar and battery storage systems to contribute to energy reliability and security. The program will offer insights that can be applied around Australia.
The Australian Government is backing the project, with $2.9m for Evoenergy to lead Project Converge. The Hon Tim Wilson MP, Assistant Minister to the Minister for Industry, Energy and Emissions Reduction, said ‘Our vision is to make households part of Australia’s climate solution.’
Project Converge will explore ways that electricity networks can accommodate the continued uptake of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and 2-way flows of energy.
The project will be run in collaboration with the Battery Storage and Grid Integration Program at the Australian National University, Zepben and the ACT Government.
