SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

Australia needs more energy test beds

This Smart Grid Lab in Canada physically and electrically replicates a micro-grid. If we had one in every State and Territory in Australia, we could fast-track the development of and integration of renewables (wind,solar, ocean), energy storage (fuel cells, batteries, EVs) and users of energy, such as electrolysers for small-scale hydrogen (diesel replacement), while safely studying the interactions under different scenarios in real-time.  https://www.ryerson.ca/cue/testing/schneider-electric-smart-grid-lab/

Yup - sure is. Here is another link with some video on the Lab.https://www.ryerson.ca/cue/testing/schneider-electric-smart-grid-lab/ 

Also a link to the Qld announcement in Feb 2020.
