Most Australian households looking at battery storage just want to make the most of their solar investment and use as little grid supplied energy as possible. But what should they look to buy?
Energeia report finds that an enlightened Australian electricity market, built around demand-based network tariffs, could save as much as $16bn in avoided infrastructure costs and cut power bills by 30%.
IPART survey finds up to 60% of NSW solar households will come off the premium FiT in December; meanwhile, some 22% don't even know what they're being paid for their solar exports.
As the industry awaits the regulator's decision on a proposed NEM rule change that would give "local network credits" to distributed energy generators, a major Australian study has found such a measure could save $1.2bn on avoided network infrastructure costs.
What will happen when my feed in tariff ends? We did the numbers to see how battery storage could help our solar system minimise our bills.
Should battery storage be discharged during peak only, and is it worth discharging during off-peak periods in order to maximise solar soak-up?
Sunverge, the US-based energy management company supplying the "brains" for AGL's 5MW virtual power plant, explains how the project will benefit consumers.
Newly released survey data suggests we may have dramatically underestimated the take up of battery storage in Australia.
Major Australian survey paints a picture of an electricity market where consumers are not seeing value from their service providers, so are looking elsewhere to find it – a trend that will drive battery storage uptake and could double rooftop solar penetration in most states and territories.
As NSW's relatively generous solar rates come to a close, 150,000-odd solar homes are looking to make the transition as painless as possible. So what are your options? We break them down for you.
