Who is building the solution project?
Under Project EDGE, AEMO is collaborating with Aggregator Mondo and Distribution Utility AusNet to demonstrate how aggregated DER can deliver multiple energy services at both the wholesale and local network levels.
The digital infrastructure is based on the Energy Web’s open-source stack and integrates with technology systems operated by Australian market participants. It leverages market intelligence software from PXiSE and uses Microsoft Azure cloud computing resources to integrate with AEMO and external partner systems
EDGE is only the beginningof Energy Web’s technology approach By applying this approach to other legacy energy market processes, we can unlock even more societal value. Examples include
Enhancing The Australian DER Register
The technology being deployed under EDGE can also be used to help the DER register become more dynamic in order to, for example, host smart inverter settings in close to real-time as they change.
Enabling Dynamic Retail / Aggregator Supplier Switching
An identity-based approach makes switching between retailers and/or aggregators simple and easily traceable amongst multiple market participants.
Supporting Real-Time Certificate Issuance For Renewable Electricity Accounting
Corporates and grid operators around the world are experimenting with new renewable energy accounting systems that attempt to match load with renewable energy supply 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, instead of using certificates to achieve “net zero” in a given timeframe.
