Project goals

This is the Final Report for the Australian Solar Institute (ASI) funded project entitled Characterising the Effect of High Penetration Solar Intermittency on Australian Electricity Networks. The broad aims of this project were to:

  • consult key solar industry stakeholders to understand and assemble a list of key concerns regarding solar intermittency in Australia
  • develop a model linking solar intermittency to generation output
  • assess the current state of research worldwide and the unique aspects of Australian deployments
  • develop an understanding of how solar intermittency differs from wind.
