Technology solutions providers are iterating rapidly, bringing new products to market, and enabling new supply options for energy users and new business models for energy providers.
Solutions providers can work with resellers and systems integrators, or directly with customers from the utility, project development, or property industries. In each case there is a challenge to help their channel partners and customers understand the commercial implications of technology options.
1. Will the revenue or increased foot-traffic from installing EV charging points offset the increased costs associated with peak demand?
2. Should the battery storage system be used for demand charge management, wholesale market arbitrage or to provide frequency control services?
3. How much of the energy generated by the new solar PV system will spill to the grid, and how much will offset the sites greenhouse gas emissions?
4. Should these new assets be aggregated to participate in wholesale electricity markets, demand response programs, or to provide network support services?
5. What will the payback period be from an investment in new technology? The net present value? The internal rate of return?
We can work with solution providers to accurately reflect the exact behaviour of their products and services in our digital twin technology so that benefits are properly represented.
Solution providers or their channel partners can use Gridcognition directly to undertake project assessments, or we can provide branded and customised software options through a partnership.

Introduction Our previous post compared the value that residential PV solar owners in Australia can get from the various Feed in Tariff (FiT) schemes in different states. We found that the relative economics of wholesale market prices and FiT schemes varied...
Introduction In recent years solar feed-in-tariffs (FiTs) in Australia have been falling steadily to reflect both changes to the underlying wholesale markets, but also in acknowledgement by governments that solar no longer needs juicy FiT incentives to fly....
Here's a quick video building on our recent blog post on community battery network tariffs. I've taken one of the trial tariffs and added in the perspective of how the battery might reduce network cost at the local distribution level.
