luceo is proud to announce that we have been awarded a grant by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) to help with Australia’s fast and safe transition to a clean energy future.

The project is backed by a strong consortium of the following network partners: Ergon Energy Energex Essential Energy, The University of Queensland and fellow QLD start-up GridQube complement the team.

“There is growing recognition that the lack of reliable, low voltage network data is limiting DER’s true value for both customers and networks. It is, however, incredibly difficult to acquire, sort and integrate multiple data sets into a single source. Tackling this complex and challenging task is what makes Luceo Energy’s project so innovative…The project could increase the value delivered by renewables by determining a ‘sweet spot’ between investment in data monitoring and visibility of DER to ensure that the right level of investment is applied, benefiting all key stakeholders including DNSPs, regulators and ultimately customers.” – Darren Miller, AERNA CEO

Through this project, luceo will develop a proof-of-concept platform to draw together and integrate data from a range of sources, including smart meter data, battery and inverter data, network data, and information from communications systems.

Once developed, the platform will be trialed by a number of Queensland and New South Wales distribution network operators, including Essential Energy, Ergon Energy, and Energex.
