Energy systems and digitisation

In order to handle an influx of renewable energy, our entire system must be more flexible – from generation to transmission and demand.

Areas of focus

  • Microgrid control and energy management systems
  • Load modelling and management of electric vehicles
  • Smart battery arrays
  • Internet of Things (IoT), computing and 5G networks
  • Distributed energy resources (DER)
  • Smart sensing, device-to-device communication and advanced data analytics to increase grid network visibility

Impact and outcomes

  • Design of urban renewable energy systems
  • Opportunity assessment in local DER network solutions and improved operational lifetime and performance of DERs
  • Improved community understanding of how to proliferate DER use without incurring additional costs
  • Development of next generation workforce to innovate in energy sector with advanced technologies
  • Load modelling and management of electric vehicles
  • Interconnection of multi-microgrid systems
