Interim knowledge sharing on the Jemena DER Hosting Capacity Project
Pre-register for this knowledge sharing webinar hosted by Jemena, AusNet Services and UNSW Sydney
Jemena, with its project partners AusNet Services and UNSW Sydney, is running an ARENA funded trial to demonstrate innovative technologies to increase the hosting capacity of DER (Distributed Energy Resources) on a low voltage electricity distribution network and help create solar-friendly neighbourhoods.
Join them for presentations and information sessions into various aspects of the project: bench testing, network modelling, installation and commissioning, early results and approach to trial and innovation.
10.00am – Welcome and Introduction
10.05am – Network Modelling and LV Phase balancing
10.20am – Appliance Testing
10.30am – Q&A
10.40am – Installation and Commissioning
10.50am – Battery Energy Storage System
11.00am – Final Q&A and wrap up
This event will be held via Zoom. An event link will be distributed to registered attendees prior.
