To better understand the renewable transformation currently underway, the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) and ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, led a group of international energy industry executives to explore the renewable energy market in Australia. The trip included face-to-face meetings with industry experts and decision makers who are adapting to change in the region’s dynamic and challenging environment.
As a result of this trip, the team identified key learnings in three main areas: operational and technical issues, customers and stakeholders, and leadership. On Thursday, January 26, 2017, the energy executives from the mission will share their insights in a webinar titled, “Lessons from a DER Revolution – Findings from the Executive Mission to Australia.” This webinar will highlight the strategies and technologies being used to deploy DERs.
“The high penetration of distributed solar makes Australia an interesting and important case study for utilities in the United States,” said Chris Vlahoplus, partner and clean tech & sustainability practice leader at ScottMadden.
