The State Government has released the Distributed Energy Resources (DER) Roadmap to enable WA to have a smart and integrated electricity system.
Distributed Energy Resources (DER) is the term given to:
- Rooftop solar systems
- Electric vehicles
- Microgrids and other small-scale energy technologies
These resources are transforming our electricity systems, here in WA and across the world.
Our energy systems look very different today, compared with only a few years ago. These changes have been driven by WA’s high uptake of rooftop solar and our collective need for cleaner, more efficient ways of living.
We’re working with the State Government and other partners to help deliver some of the actions outlined in the Distributed Energy Resources Roadmap, launched in April 2020.
This plan - called the DER Roadmap - guides what needs to happen to address new opportunities and challenges related to how we produce, manage and consume electricity in WA.
We’re exploring an exciting range of energy solutions to support WA’s energy needs for today, tomorrow and well into the future.
