DER-Lab Launched

ITP Renewables in conjunction with the Australian National University (ANU), UNSW Canberra, Evoenergy and the ACT Government are pleased to announce a new lab to facilitate rapid prototyping and testing of different combinations of new control, monitoring and communication systems for use with distributed energy and storage solutions will be built at the ANU’s Acton campus in Canberra. 

Once built, the new Distributed Energy Resource (DER) test laboratory “DER-Lab” will be housed at the ANU which is within the Evoenergy distribution network. The lab will model a small and reconfigurable distribution network where an array of DER devices such as residential batteries, solar PV systems, inverters, and real and simulated controllable electrical loads will be available to industry and researchers.
