I installed a battery to self-consume my solar energy, why would I want to opt into a VPP and share my stored energy with the grid?

As the electricity market evolves, there will be an increasing number of revenue opportunities (e.g. arbitrage to spot market, network support, FCAS, etc). Evergen enables participation in these with a view to have all solar and battery owners becoming profitable from their investment in a system, rather than just minimising costs. Our algorithms will only allow revenue opportunities if they exceed any benefits from self consumption.

Additionally, unused energy from your solar battery system will push clean energy into Australia's energy network. The result is effectively a win-win, where the environment benefits from a reduction in demand for energy generated by coal-fired power stations and you are compensated for every kW you export back to the grid.
