What is generation management?

One of the challenges of managing renewable energy installations is the impact of their intermittent nature on the security and reliability of the power supply. 

Generation management devices (like Feed-In Management or FIM) help to overcome this challenge by controlling the electricity output of your rooftop solar. The availability of generation management installations means that we can allow more renewable energy to be installed across our electricity systems. 

In many of our towns, a smaller sized ‘Basic Micro EG’ solar energy system can only be installed if it is provisioned for Feed-In Management. This means the system can be retrofitted with a generation management device later, if we determine it is necessary for the stability of the grid.

Larger renewable energy systems can only be installed with generation management.
