What is a Virtual Power Plant (VPP)?


A VPP is a network of homes with battery storage connected through smart technology. As electricity supply and demand changes on the national grid, this network of connected homes joins together to support the grid, either by releasing energy onto it, or storing energy from it. In return, participating homes are paid an incentive each time their battery storage is called on in this way. The ultimate goal of a VPP is to reduce reliance on fossil fuels by enabling more reliable use of renewables and with this, delivering cheaper electricity for all Australians.
