Discover Energy is delighted to announce the full API integration of their Virtual Power Plant (VPP) platform with Huawei FusionSolar, becoming the first VPP in Australia to integrate with Huawei.
The integration allows customers who are already using Huawei inverters for their battery systems to join Discover Energy’s VPP network, helping to optimise income through the energy trading platform and sell excess power back to the grid.
The partnership marks another token of success for Discover Energy since its inception in 2018. Discover Energy leverages AI, machine learning and deep solar data to develop electricity spot-price forecasting with high accuracy and allows VPP members to participate in electricity trading, which includes access to up to a market-leading 45c/kWh solar feed-in tariff*. Discover Energy now boasts over 700 VPP members across the nation.
“It’s exciting to see Discover Energy continuing to extend the frontier of VPP technology in Australia and we’re proud to be working with such an established technology business like Huawei,” says Anson Zhang, CEO of Discover Energy. “Continuing to strengthen our VPP open hardware infrastructure will benefit our customers’ return on investment through increased AI learning and by putting energy trading into more customers’ hands, we’re a step closer to a smart and sustainable future.”
Daniel Lin, Managing Director of Huawei Solar Business Australia, believes the partnership comes as Huawei makes its foray into Australia’s rooftop solar boom and as VPP grows to become a pioneering energy solution.
“With the decrease in feed-in tariff and the growing demand for battery storage and VPPs in Australia, we believe the partnership between Huawei and Discover Energy will benefit the Australian customer by not only providing the ultimate user experience but also maximising the return of their solar investment,” Lin says.
Discover Energy is also currently working with Huawei to trial Huawei’s new Luna 2000 energy storage system, launched at the Smart Energy Conference 2021, on the VPP platform.
*This rate applies to customers on a VPP Premium Plan for their first 300 kWh per quarter.

V2Gエネルギー取引のトライアルは、シリーズ4のACE Transformer車両[a]で実施されます。この車両15台は、今年後半にトンスリー・イノベーション地区のAldom Electric Vehicle Manufacturing社で組み立てられる予定です。これらの専用車両は、緊急時に作業ツールの電源として機能し、停電時のグリッド回復力サービスや家庭のエネルギーセキュリティを備えたモバイルエネルギー管理機能を持っています。
今回のパートナーシップについて、ACE EV Groupのマネージングディレクターであるグレッグ・マクガービー氏は、「オーストラリアは、新しいエネルギー時代の入り口に立っています。私たちは、電気自動車のバッテリーを利用して日常のエネルギーコストを相殺する方法や、この新しい電気自動車のソリューションを活用することで、安価でクリーンなエネルギーへのより確実なアクセスを実現する方法を模索しています」と述べています。
6월 10일 호주내 스마트 에너지 리테일러의 선두주자 디스커버 에너지가 호주 청정 에너지 전기 자동차 그룹인 (ACE EV Group) 과 운명적인 파트너십 협약을 맺었습니다. 이 파트너십 협약으로 호주 최초의 상용 V2G (차량 대 전력망) 스마트 에너지 거래 솔루션이 시도 됩니다.
새로운 파트너십 협약으로, ACE 전기 차량 운영자가 Discover Energy의 독점기술인 가상 발전소 (VPP) 소프트웨어를 활용하여 차량 충전 시간을 최적화하고 충전 후 배터리에 저장된 잉여 에너지를 최고 가격으로 전력망에 다시 판매 할 수 있는 시스템이 가능해졌습니다. 이 플랫폼이 상용화되면 전기 자동차 사용자에게는 상당한 비용 절감과 안전하게 전력망 전기를 사용하는 이점을 기대할 수 있게 되었습니다.
안전한 파트너십 운영을 위해 ACE 전기차는 ‘Advanced Australian Vehicle to Grid’ 프로그램에 따라 연방 정부로부터 12 개월 동안 5백만 달러의 보조금을 지원 받게 됩니다.
Discover Energy의 공동 창립자이자 CEO 인 Anson Zhang은 이번 파트너십 협약으로 호주의 전기 자동차 시장에 새로운 변혁을 가져올 것이라고 믿습니다.
“가상 발전소VPP시스템의 초기 개척자이자 지역 리더로서 우리는, 호주 가정 전역에서 태양열과 배터리 시스템이 가진 잠재력을 활용하여 값 비싼 전기 요금 청구서와 작별을 고하고 더 친환경적이고 지속 가능한 미래에 한발 더 다가설 수 있도록 힘써 왔다. “라고 디스커버 에너지 CEO Anson는 말했습니다.
“리테일러와 전기차 브랜드간의 협약은 이번이 처음이며, 또한 V2G 차량 대 전력망 스마트 충전 플랫폼의 최초의 협력 모델이기도 합니다. 이 스마트 충전 및 에너지 거래 솔루션은 전기 자동차 사용자가 차량에 사용 에너지를 충전 할 수 있을 뿐만 아니라 이를 통해 경제적 수익 또한 기대할 수 있게 합니다. 스마트 충전 플랜을 통해 사용자의 전기 자동차를 충전하고, V2G 차량 대 전력망 거래 플랫폼을 통해 에너지 수요가 높은 시간대를 자동으로 선택하여 배터리 사용하고 남아 배터리에 저장된 에너지를 높은 가격으로 전력망에 다시 판매하여 사용자의 이익을 또한 극대화 할 수 있다. “라고 또한 덧붙였습니다.
V2G(차량 대 전력망) 에너지 거래 플랫폼은 차량 시리즈 4 ACE 변압기 차량을 통해 테스트가 이루어질 예정이고, 이 중 15 차량은 올해 말 Tonsley Innovation District의 Aldom Electric Vehicle Manufacturing에서 조립할 예정입니다.
ACE EV 그룹 전무 이사 인 Greg
McGarvie는 이번 파트너십에 대해 “이제 우리는 호주의 새로운 에너지 시대의 문턱에 서 있습니다. 우리는EV 전기 자동차 배터리를 사용하여 평소 사용하는 에너지 요금을 절약하는 방법과 새로운 EV 전기 자동차 솔루션을 활용하여 저렴한 청정 에너지를 보다 안정적으로 공급 받을
ACE EV전기차는 또한 보조금의 일부를 EV전기차 제조 시설 구축에 사용하여 에너지 사용으로 인한 오염 및 탄소 소비를 줄이고 기후 변화에 유연하게 대처하기 위한 정부의 기술적 솔루션 목표에 발 맞추고 있습니다.
Discover Energy는 또한 호주의 V2G (전기차량 대 전력망 거래) 시험의 일환으로Optus, Watt & Well 및 SenSen Networks와 함께 ACE EV전기 자동차와 협력하여 ACE의 첫 번째 전기 자동차 플랜 실현을 촉진 할 것입니다.
The new partnership will mean ACE EV vehicle operators will be able to harness Discover Energy’s proprietary Virtual Power Plant (VPP) software to optimise charging times, selling excess energy back to the grid at peak prices. Once commercially available it is set to deliver significant cost savings for electric vehicle users, as well as stability benefits to the grid.
The partnership comes after ACE EV secured a $5 million grant from the Federal Government to fund a 12-month long ‘Advanced Australian Vehicle to Grid’ program.
Anson Zhang, co-founder and CEO of Discover Energy, believes the partnership will bring a new dimension to EV ownership in Australia.
“As an early pioneer and local leader in VPP, we’ve helped households across Australia harness the potential of their solar and battery systems to say farewell to costly bills and ‘hello’ to a greener, more sustainable future,” said Zhang.
“Our latest collaboration with ACE EV will take this a step further. This V2G solution will financially reward eco-conscious Aussies by allowing them to trade surplus energy back to the grid while their car is parked at home,” Zhang added. “When it comes to sustainable energy, we’re quite literally giving the power back to the people.”
The V2G energy trading trial will be implemented on the Series 4 ACE Transformer vehicles – 15 of which will be assembled later this year by Aldom Electric Vehicle Manufacturing in Tonsley Innovation District. These purpose-built vehicles can act as a direct power source for work tools in emergency situations, demonstrating mobile energy management capabilities with grid resilience services and home energy security during power outages.
Speaking of the partnership, ACE EV Group managing director Greg McGarvie said, “We are on the threshold of a new energy era in Australia. We are exploring how the EV battery can be used to offset everyday energy costs and how the utilisation of this new EV solution can create more reliable access to affordable clean energy.”
ACE EV will also use a small part of the grant to help establish an EV manufacturing facility, underpinning the Government’s goals of technological solutions for reducing pollution, carbon loads and fighting climate change.
ACE EV is also partnering with Optus, Watt & Well and SenSen Networks as part of the Advanced Australian Vehicle to Grid trial.
此外，成为 Discover Energy VPP 的一部分还意味着可以参与到最先进的能源交易，以优惠的价格出售额外的电池能量。Discover Energy 的 VPP 还有一个令人兴奋的新功能是该平台能够在适当的市场条件下为VPP用户免费远程充放电，尽可能地保证了用户的利益最大化。
Discover Energy 于 2020 年在澳大利亚推出了首个能源交易平台，并且截止至目前为止，已经在南澳、新南威尔士州、维多利亚州、昆士兰州以及堪培拉拥有700多名 VPP 成员。
LG Energy Solution澳大利亚总经理Philip Crotty表示，
“LG Energy Solution是电池技术的创新者，我们很高兴能够与 Discover Energy 合作，让我们的电池能够为用户带来更多的价值。作为一家电力零售公司，Discover Energy不仅仅支持用户将储能电池里面的电在用电高峰期时以高价卖回给电网，还支持远程控制充放电，让用户可以从LG的家用电池中获得最佳收益。我们期待能够与Discover Energy建立长期且稳定的合作伙伴关系，共同为可再生能源革命做出贡献。”
Discover Energy首席执行官Anson Zhang表示，
“LG Energy Solution 是一个标志性的电池品牌，以以前沿的存储技术而闻名。我们很高兴他们的 RESU 系列目前与我们的 VPP 平台集成的四分之三的逆变器品牌兼容。这意味着除了停电保护和减少对传统能源的依赖之外，LG Energy Solution 客户可以享受加入 我们VPP 网络所带来的巨大利润潜力。我们期待与 LG Energy Solution 合作，提高对光伏存储的认识和采用，并帮助所有澳大利亚人开创更绿色的未来。”
另外，我们除了与LG Energy Solution合作以外，我们与SolarEdge、Goodwe、Huawei、Alpha·ESS和 Sungrow等多个品牌也有着密切的合作关系。未来，Discover Energy将携手各种逆变器以及电池品牌为绿色能源革命做出贡献。敬请期待！
