The holy grail for the national Electricity market is the matching of demand with renewable energy production. There is a way to get 50% of a consumer’s energy consumption matched perfectly to renewable energy, making our grid more stable, and super charging the savings consumers get from installing PV. Concepts like Controlled Load Off-Peak, and TOU tariffs are contributing to the instability of the grid. This presentation is a preview of how consumer demand is likely to be managed in the future.

 

3 key takeaways from this presentation:
1. Lots of renewables in the grid has it’s challenges
2.Smooth distribution of power is key
3.Storage and load shifting is key
