Monitoring and Measuring Report

We are very pleased to share our findings from the Smart Grid, Smart City project with the Australian Government and industry. These documents are a key output from the project that we believe will give real world insights into smart grids. We hope it will accelerate and inform the future adoption of smart grid technologies in Australia. We hope that by making these findings available, Ausgrid, the consortium partners and the Australian Government can provide findings that will put Australia at the forefront of smart grid development.
