AFR report on Renewable energy and the ‘smart grid’

Back in October 2016,  The Australian Financial Review posted this article reviewing developments in renewable energy and smart grid technology. The journalist, Ben Potter, profiles Troy Hart and his family’s home in Adelaide’s Salisbury Heights which contains a Tesla Powerwall.

Some key points…

Why was this article particularly of interest to us? As explained on our site here, we are working with the Energy Storage Council to develop an Energy Storage Register.

The Energy Storage Register is being developed to assist with four key challenges (plus a few ancillary challenges) with the growing adoption of battery storage technology into Australia’s electricity system.

How has this installation been registered? The storage industry envisages that installations like this will be registered in the Energy Storage Register, with access to this data restricted under Privacy Provisions.

With the information provided in this news article, we have been able to commence the process for registering this particular installation, with the Energy Storage Register generating the unique registration code listed in the Storage Registration Widget embedded at the bottom of this article.

What are next steps, in fleshing out the registration record? The registration code (below) can be used to link more detailed information that can be supplied by others who have more detailed knowledge of this particular installation.

These stakeholders include:

  • The home owner (in this case, Troy Hart);
  • The storage manufacturer (Tesla);
  • The retailer (not mentioned in the article);
  • The storage installer (not mentioned in the article);
  • The local network company (SA Power Networks).

To enter more data you may have with respect to this particular  installation, please use the form embedded below.

Adding data with respect to another installation? To submit data with respect to another installation (i.e. different from this one), please use the data entry form that is embedded here (and also elsewhere across the web).
