Research and development is underway to develop sophisticated ways to 'evolve the grid' to allow for increasing amounts of solar PV, battery storage and electric vehicles to participate in the electricity system.
The grid, originally designed for one-way flows of electricity, is transitioning to a system in which dynamic two-way flows of energy are common place, meaning that challenges and opportunities abound. New approaches to the integration and operation of solar PV, battery storage and electric vehicles recognise the vital role these technologies will play in securing Australia's energy supply.
