Ginninderry Residential Battery Trial

With the support of the ACT Government and the Ginninderry Joint Venture, Evoenergy will be providing subsidised residential batteries for up to 75 homes in Ginninderry Stage 1A to explore how small-scale solar and batteries interact with local electrical infrastructure in areas where there is 100 percent solar uptake.

Through this project, we’ll be collaborating with these battery owners to alleviate network congestion during peak demand periods. This is being achieved through the trial of a new cost-reflective tariff designed to support the local electricity grid, and provide customers with more control over their electricity bills. This project will play an important role in helping evolve the way we manage network demand and ensure our energy network continues to be resilient, reliable, safe and secure into the future.

Registrations for Evoenergy’s Ginninderry Residential Battery Trial are expected to open in October 2020. We’ll get in touch with eligible Ginninderry residents and provide project updates on the Evoenergy website.

See more information about the funding we’ve received for this project under the ACT Government’s Renewable Energy Innovation Fund. 

Demand Management

Demand management allows customers to reduce their electricity demand for a period of time in exchange for a payment or reduction in their electricity charges. It is a win-win situation where customers are compensated for their involvement and receive lower electricity charges long-term, while helping Evoenergy manage demand on the network. Find out more.

Embedded generation

Generators connected to our distribution network are called ‘embedded generators’ (EGs). These generators are embedded within our distribution network and not directly connected to our transmission network. The entity that owns, operates or controls an embedded generating unit is called the Embedded Generator. Find out more.

DER Integration and Automation

Distributed energy resources (DER) such as solar photovoltaics (PV), battery installations and electric vehicles are increasing in popularity in Canberra and we need to understand more about the affect they have on the electricity network and how we can optimise their use. The DER Integration and Automation project will investigate and test options for how DER can effectively integrate into our energy system and how they can be used by customers to their full potential.

The DER Integration and Automation project has received $2.05 million in funding from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, and will be led by Evoenergy and delivered in close collaboration with project partners Schneider Electric, GreenSync, and Withywindle. Find out more.
