This course is an introduction to the SwitchDin interface for managing Virtual Power Plants (VPP). It covers the key concepts and functionalities, guiding you through the general setup and configuration process.

About This Course

As Australia’s energy system becomes more distributed and decentralised, electricity networks, retailers and system operators are looking for ways to harness the potential of distributed energy resources (e.g. solar, batteries, air conditioners, water heaters and more) to bolster system reliability and efficiency.

A Virtual Power Plant (VPP) is a software and communications-based capability that enables the orchestration of a fleet of Distributed Energy Resources (DER/CER) in a manner that both meets customer needs and provides beneficial electric products to one or more tiers or layers of the power system.

VPP-ready sites are equipped with real-time monitoring and control functionality, so that VPP operators can make real-time decisions about when, where and how to deploy resources in their fleet.

VPP participation will become a key way for homes and businesses to get more out of their energy assets, being financially rewarded for taking part in VPP programs.

SwitchDin’s VPP platform is vendor and retailer-neutral, allowing a high degree of flexibility for end-users and energy companies alike.
