Topic: Integrating and orchestrating batteries into the Distribution Network
Batteries will play an increasing and important role in the electricity grids of the future. Steven Humphries and Aidan Roberts from Energex will be present to the audience learnings obtained from the Energex battery trials.
Multiple papers have suggested methods to integrate batteries into the distribution network to change the way electricity is used. Since all distribution networks are different, it is advocated that the integration method also needs to change to suit the distribution company’s network model.
This presentation will cover:
• Update on the status of the Energex Market Based Battery and Demonstration Site Trials
• The approach taken
• How standards enable Innovation
• Early learnings from the initial results
• How battery systems change customers’ load profiles
• Realising benefits for both customers and networks through orchestration of batteries
