WA’s energy transformation is underway and more of WA’s energy needs are being supplied by renewable energy sources than ever before.

36% of WA homes now have solar and collectively rooftop solar can generate twice as much electricity as the largest power station in the South West Interconnected System at certain times of the day.

As a result, WA’s energy system is rapidly evolving – and while there is still a role for fossil fuels such as coal and gas to ensure reliability and stability, as the transition occurs large-scale wind and solar generation are also playing a greater role in the energy generation mix. 

 

WA’s energy system is evolving – and we’re here to guide you, today and tomorrow

You could be one of the growing number of people here in WA embracing the power of solar. Perhaps you’re interested about different renewable technologies or you drive an electric vehicle. The future of energy has arrived and we’re here to help you find your way.

The DER Roadmap outlines the State Government's plan to meet a range of challenges and opportunities presented by distributed energy resources (DER).

The adoption of more renewable generation in WA means we need to shift some of our energy demand. This is why you might have seen us talking about low load and balancing the grid. 

To meet the energy needs of tomorrow, we’re working with the State Government and the energy industry to find new ways to store and share energy today. This includes trialling virtual power plants (or VPPs) through projects such as the Schools VPP pilot project.

We’re also installing WA's biggest battery and contributing to projects like Australia's longest EV charging network. 

As we explore new ways of generating, storing, sharing and using energy, we’re here to help you understand what it means for you and make the most of these opportunities in this new energy landscape.

 

Make the most of your solar to create a better tomorrow

If you’re a household with rooftop solar, there are some simple changes you could make to maximise the use of the energy generated by your solar panels and make the most of your investment. You could also consider electrification to use more of the renewable energy you generate to power your home. This could reduce your carbon emissions and also help keep the grid stable to create a better tomorrow.

Our current pilots

We’re working to support the transition to a renewable energy future by running pilots* and participating in key development projects.

*Pilot terms and conditions apply to all pilots.
