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.
