Roadmap to 100% Renewables Development


The Voluntary Specification for Grid-Forming Inverters, published in May 2023:

  • Defines and specifies the ‘core’ technical capabilities that power electronic devices should have in order to be categorised as grid-forming inverters
  • Includes expected performance requirements for grid-forming inverters and ‘additional capabilities’ which, although desirable, may not be met by all grid-forming inverters

The Compliance of DER with Technical Settings report, published in April 2023:

  • Summarises the evidence on the nature and scale of DER non-compliance
  • Highlights the importance and urgency of improving DER compliance
  • Shares insights that may inform improvements to governance frameworks for managing DER compliance.

The Inertia in the NEM explained factsheet, published in March 2023:

  • Clarifies and distinguishes key terms associated with power system inertia in the NEM
  • Presents AEMO’s technical view on inertia in the NEM at time of publication

The Enduring primary frequency response requirements for the NEM technical white paper, published in September 2021:

  • Examines the role of primary frequency response (PFR) within the broader frequency control chain.
  • Establishes the technical characteristics and power system requirements of effective PFR.
  • Explores how effective PFR can be maintained as the power system continues to transition into the future.

The Application of Advanced Grid-Scale Inverters in the NEM white paper, published in August 2021:

  • Describes the application of advanced grid-scale inverters in the NEM, with a focus on grid-forming inverters.
  • Provides recommendations toward enabling the application of this technology to support the NEM.
