Western Australia has the potential to become a global leader in renewable energy microgrid development and export, a new report from the Western Australian Parliamentary Inquiry Into Microgrids and Associated Technologies in the state has found. 

Renewable energy based microgrids offer a wide range of benefits, including “reliable, dispatchable energy” supply and as a grid balancing resource.

They’re also an economic win-win, thanks to the low cost of renewable energy generation and the ability of microgrids to reduce total system costs by deferring, reducing or entirely removing the need to invest in new and costly poles and wires.
