AESA submission to COAG Consultation


On 19th September 2016, the AESA provided this 2 page submission to the COAG consultation process asking about both:
1)  The need for a central register of installed battery storage facilities; and
2)  A process by which it might be developed and maintained.

In its submission, the AESA provides comments gleaned from some of its members – namely AECOM, ITK, DNV GL, DPA Solar, LG Chem and EcoEnergyWorld.  You can review the submission if you want to know what these people said.
