Reference project name
AEMO’s VPP Demonstrations
AEMO’s trial framework allowed VPPs to demonstrate their capability to deliver services in contingency FCAS (through a trial specification) and respond to energy market price signals. By trialling VPP operations while aggregated fleets remain of a small scale, the VPP Demonstrations were able to provide information regarding the effective integration of VPPs into the NEM before they reach large scale.
Reports and webinars covering different aspects of the demonstrations can be donwloaded from the website.
