Plug & Play: Facilitating Grid Connection of Low Emissions Technologies


Climate Works Australia


1 February 2017

The Plug and Play project aimed to identify and drive the implementation of institutional and policy solutions to make grid connections for existing and emerging technologies as straightforward and cost effective as possible for customers and proponents while safeguarding electricity supply. This report outlines the findings from the first stage of the project, in which the authors looked at (1) the current connection requirements and processes and (2) the barriers and unnecessary costs they impose on the connection of low-emission technologies to the electricity network.
