Overview of initiative
The energy sector is undergoing a transition. It is moving to a world where sustainability, low emissions, affordability and connectivity is paramount to meeting the expectations of the earth and the people in it.
In Australia, the shift is away from centralised electricity generation and usage to a decentralised way of living; consumers are taking an active (‘smart’) role in controlling how they engage with the energy grid and their own carbon footprint.
This initiative will explore how to integrate smart energy resources into the energy system through standardisation, and how to create synergies that maximise efficiency and reduce costs.
Why is this important?
Change is happening rapidly and there is a need for the appropriate standards and resources to be in place to provide clarity, confidence, efficiency and cost savings. Standards Australia seeks to be the go-to body for smart energy interoperability standardisation, governance and coordination.
