To do this we are prudently investing in the transformation of our network to more easily allow us to incorporate distributed energy resources and optimise the network in real time.
Ausgrid has an important role to play in encouraging customers to invest in renewable technologies and developing the grid for the energy mix of the future. In the shorter term we are continuing to make it easier for residential customers to install solar panels and batteries by streamlining our connection processes. We are also implementing demand management solutions to incentivise solar and battery uptake and encourage investment in energy efficiency where it reduces the need for network investment.
Through these initiatives, we are playing our part in implementing the Electricity Network Transformation Roadmap developed by Energy Networks Australia and CSIRO.
