2019 was another record year for total rooftop solar PV power stations less than five megawatts with 2.4 gigawatts delivered.
This surpasses the previous record of 1.7 gigawatts delivered in 2018. There is now 10.7 gigawatts of rooftop solar PV installed under the Renewable Energy Target, the equivalent generating capacity of the largest coal fired generation plant in Australia.
Distributed energy resources are shifting the production and management of electricity in Australia, as electricity generation moves
from centralised power stations to millions of decentralised sources including households and businesses. Distributed energy sources have given consumers greater control
over their energy use and supported the decarbonisation of the electricity grid. However, this shift to decentralisation increases the operational complexity for Australian Energy Market Operator and the Distribution Network Service Providers.
