Basic Embedded Generation Connection Technical Requirements

We're responsible for the development of standards in relation to connection requirements for customers and customer generation equipment. We aim to ensure equitable access for all customers based on connection service and network type for embedded generator systems. To provide guidance for installers and consumers we have released a new Basic Embedded Generator Connection Technical Requirements focused on standard connection service customers. The new requirements introduce export limits for larger systems and the management of distributed energy resources through authorised agents.
