Network customer trials

Ausgrid is trialling a number of products for customers throughout Smart Grid, Smart City

There are more than 30,000 homes in the Smart Grid, Smart City trial area. These homes helped to facilitate the testing of next generation smart meters and other technologies. The Smart Grid, Smart City project looked at the compatibility between some new technologies, smart meters and the grid. 

The technologies trialed included a number of in-home customer products, local generation through solar panels and natural gas fuel cells and electric vehicles.

The information gathered from these trials could greatly improve the way that we provide and use electricity in Australia.

See below for the full list of network customer trials; you can read more about each trial and technology.
