We are seeking your feedback to help shape Energex’s residential battery trials. We are releasing the Preliminary Findings Report which provides an overview and preliminary results of two residential battery trials underway in South East Queensland. These trials are unique in their focus on the coordination of demand response capable batteries complaint with AS/NZS 4755.3.5 and new innovative ways of communicating between the distributor’s Load Control System and third party battery applications.

We have already gained invaluable information on how customers use batteries and how their energy load profiles have changed. The Preliminary Findings show the potential for coordinated standardised demand response of batteries to enable more distributed energy resources to connect to the network.

We are seeking feedback around 3 key questions that the trials are aiming to answer. These include:

A copy of the report can be found on the Energex website on the page about battery trials. Please circulate to other interested people.

Feedback is due 22 December 2017
