Elevate your backup power testing practices, and get paid for it

Achieve a new standard of emergency preparation by participating in a Virtual Power Plant

Earn new revenue by joining Australia's largest VPP

Access immediate financial returns for providing critical grid support as part of our VPP.

Test backup systems in realistic emergency conditions

VPP participation provides the closest simulation of emergency conditions as events often correlate with high temperatures and high site electricity demand.

Protect equipment from power quality disturbances

Hospital equipment can damage during deviations in grid frequency. Our VPP responds to these deviations to avoid grid failures, which also protects your equipment.

During VPP testing we discovered that one of our generator circuit breakers operated intermittently and wouldn’t always close. This meant that when both of our backup generators were required to
supply hospital demand, the hospital’s supply redundancy could have been compromised if the breaker didn’t close. Once the fault was identified, the ‘sticky’ breaker was replaced.

Ken Herman, Engineering Services Manager at Swan Hill District Health

We have a lot of electronic equipment that's sensitive to things like voltage spikes and frequency deviations. We set parameters on our incoming equipment, so that if the grid’s frequency deviates, we switch to our generator. VPP participation became a hand in glove approach for us, it meant we were able to get paid for doing the same thing we already were.

Mark Hooper, Executive Project Manager at Echuca Regional Health

As we’re running our generators on load [in VPP participation], we can defer our weekly test for another week, because we've proven that we've met the required standard to test them on load.
