Microgrids – into the void

June 2016

Ann Whitfield presented at the ENA Networks 2016 conference in Adelaide.  She spoke about the current lack of a framework for customers ‘to go off grid’, both in cases where the network business has identified that that would be a lower cost solution overall to supplying those customers, and in cases where a group of customers have themselves decided that they would like to form a separate microgrid.  In the absence of a framework, network businesses will be spending above efficient costs, and customer choice in electricity supply risks being frustrated.  Ann’s presentation can be found here.
