AGL is growing one of Australia's largest Virtual Power Plants (VPPs). In a VPP, local business energy resources – including batteries, back-up generators, solar, flexible electrical loads and EV charging – can be harnessed to help support the grid.
A Virtual Power Plant is a network of connected solar and energy storage systems including batteries
Support the grid
Spare power capacity?
Turn spare power capacity into financial rewards for supporting the grid and potentially pay off energy system investments sooner.
Coordinate local energy resources
Provide energy to the grid with a network of solar systems, batteries and flexible energy-consuming equipment. VPPs use orchestration software to coordinate centrally, connecting local energy resources to support the grid in real time.
Shift your energy use and save
With our Demand Response programs, your business can contribute to the VPP and receive financial payments by curtailing energy use or shifting to back up generation during periods of peak demand.
