Aggregation in Renewable Energy – Themes and Challenges

Aggregation in Renewable Energy – Themes and Challenges

Wednesday, 29 May 2019 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

This presentation will examine the emerging trend of aggregation in its many forms in renewable energy in Australia, including site aggregation, purchaser aggregation, multiple renewable energy aggregation on one site, multi function sites and microgrids. We will look at some recent project examples, and the regulatory challenges to the development of these kinds of initiatives.

This seminar is part of a series of Energy Transition Hub events supported by the Victorian Clean Technology Fund (VCTF).
