1 Overview of Smart Grid activities in Australia Mr Charles Popple Chairman, Smart Grid Australia

2 Smart Grid Australia Inc Smart Grid Australia (SGA) is a non-profit, non-partisan alliance dedicated to an enhanced, modernised electric system. This alliance holds meetings, organises committees, assists with government initiatives, and issues communications to accelerate progress. It seeks to be an important source of ideas, inspiration, and influence for any organisation interested in this sector. Modelled on the USA GridWiseAlliance, SGA is a member of the international trade alliance Global Smart Grid Federation

3 Members: Electricity utilities Telecommunications companies Vendors Smart Grid ecosystem centric Energy investors Federal, state, and municipal agencies Research organisations Non-profit energy organisations

4 Workgroups: Policy Smart Grid Smart City (SGSC) $100m grant Energy Efficiency Task Force submission and presentation R&D Smart Grid Roadmap paper released Training study group Intelligent Networking National Broadband Network paper released Security Standards member of Smart Grid Australian Reference Group Consumer

5 Australian Energy Networks: National Energy Market (NEM) Includes Eastern and Southern States 260+ Registered Generators, 6 Transmission Networks, 13 Distribution Networks In geographical span, the largest interconnected power system in the world (>5000km) Voltage Levels Transmission (500kV/330kV/275kV/220kV) Distribution (33kV/22kV/11kV) Source: ESAA website:

6 What s unique about Australian networks: Geographical coverage and customer density USA Population 307M, Australia 22M Could have >100km of distribution network serving <50 customers Extreme weather conditions Cyclones and flooding in the North Intense heat in the interior Catastrophic bushfires in the South Fully contestable markets in Victoria Disaggregated, privatised energy supply industry Extremely active competitive retail market

7 National/State and Industry initiatives: Distribution network reliability incentive scheme Victorian Advanced Metering Infrastructure program Solar Cities National Broadband Network Smart Grid Smart City grant Victorian EV trials

8 Network Reliability Incentive regime: The incentives of the scheme applied in Victoria (applied up to 2010) are in the form of: A service term (S factor) in the price control formula, giving it the form of (1+CPI)(1-X)S. (If a distributor provides an average level of reliability better than the target levels, then its distribution tariffs will rise in subsequent years. If the reliability level is worse than the target levels, then the distribution tariffs will fall. A new Service Target Performance Incentive Scheme applies in various jurisdictions from 2009) Guaranteed service level (GSL) payments to customers for low reliability. (Customers entitled to receive a credit if they experience more than the specified number of sustained or momentary interruptions1 in a calendar year, or if they experience a cumulative supply interruption time longer than the specified number of hours) Source: ESC and AEMO websites: and

9 Victorian AMI initiative: 2006 Start Victorian Government developed Cost-Benefit Analysis Replacement of 3m meters To date 319k meters replaced (Sep10) Consumer communications lagging rollout Hence delayed TOU and signal functionality anticipated Jan12 Technology aspects Meters and systems to meet functionality and service requirements such as: Remote de-energise / energise Remote interval data read (48hrs of 1/2hr data) Communication solutions: 700k meters WiMax(higher SG functionality opportunities) 2.3m meters mesh radio solutions Source:

10 Solar Cities initiative: Australia's Solar Cities are: Adelaide, Alice Springs, Blacktown, Central Victoria, Moreland, Perth and Townsville. Each Solar City integrates energy options for homes and businesses, including use of solar technologies, cost reflective pricing trials that reward people who use energy wisely, and community education about better energy usage in an increasingly energy-reliant world. In particular, the program aims to: Demonstrate the environmental and economic effects of combining cost reflective pricing with the widespread use of solar technology, energy efficiency and smart meters, Find out what barriers exist regarding energy efficiency, electricity demand management and the use of solar technology, among businesses and householders in different parts of Australia, and test ways to deal with these barriers. Source: Solar Cities website:

11 National Broadband Network (NBN): NBN Co plans to deliver the best, most cost effective infrastructure across Australia using a combination of fibre, wireless and satellite technologies. NBN Co will design, build and operate a wholesale-only, superfastbroadband network that will provide speeds of 100 Megabits per second to 93% of Australian premises and 12 Megabits per second to 7%, subject to final design. For most premises, NBN Co will use either Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) or Ethernet Point to Point fibre and will link some premises by wireless or satellite, depending on location and geography.
