After-diversity electricity demand of low-energy households

The capacity of electricity infrastructure required for new precincts is often based on the types of customers that will occupy the new precinct and historical electricity use for each type of customer. However, modern energy-efficient precincts with local generation can have significantly lower demand than...

The viability of electrical energy storage for low-energy households

Highlights The authors simulate the operation of battery storage using data from low-energy households. The authors calculate the impact on the annual amount and cost of imported electricity. The authors calculate the payback period of various battery storage configurations. The authors estimate the ideal amount...

The viability of electrical energy storage for Lochiel Park households

Distributed electrical energy storage can help reduce the CO2 emissions associated with the use of electrical energy, better enabling distributed generation of energy from sources such as rooftop photovoltaic (PV) systems. However, electricity distribution systems were not designed to allow power to flow from consumers...
