Future technology

The way people access and use our network is changing thanks to the advent of technologies such as electric vehicles, solar panels and battery storage.

A network that adapts to a changing future allows you, the customer, to have greater choice to make and store your own energy and power your life with sustainable choices. You will also have the confidence to know that the Aurora Energy network is future proofed and can accommodate changing demands.

Our Your Say, Your Network Consultation Document sets out what our proposed plan delivers for customers around future technology.


What our proposed plan delivers for customers

What drives our spend

Make initial investments to support network transformation.

The work we will do

Develop modelling for how to manage technology uptake on the low voltage network, where consumers connect solar and electric vehicles. Upgrade network control systems to enable us to more easily integrate local generation, demand management and battery storage.

What you get as a customer

A network that is better able to support customers choices in technologies that connect to the grid. More cost effective and flexible solutions to meeting future growth.

Options for further investment

Additional investment in preparing the network for future technologies was considered, which we think can wait until after the three year CPP period. See our Your Say, Your Network Consultation Document Improved future technology readiness, page 47.
