Networks Renewed is a major new project funded by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) that aims to demonstrate how solar PV, battery storage and inverters can support distribution networks in managing power quality. The path to implementation will be established by two commercial-scale demonstrations of controlled solar PV and energy storage in the regional Mid North Coast of NSW, and suburban Melbourne in Victoria. At the time of this conference the deployment of inverters and control technologies will have commenced towards pilot-scale demonstrations to test candidate control algorithms, several of which have been published in the engineering literature. These will develop into market-scale demonstrations to achieve useful power quality improvements on selected network segments, and also market trading revenues, should these materially improve the financial returns to customers from inverter control.
