Australia’s electricity system is in a period of rapid transformation.
Growing renewable generation, the rise of distributed energy systems, and transformative consumer technologies will all lead to a future grid that operates very differently to the present.
But how exactly will it be different? How do our operational practices need to change and adapt? What do we need to do now, to ensure this transformation happens smoothly?
Join us at BrisScience this month as Dr Jenny Riesz illuminates the practical challenges that will arise as our grid transforms, and the work underway to address those challenges.
