Distributed Generation: A study of opportunities
This commentary is the summary of an extensive technical evaluation undertaken by the Centre for Advanced Engineering (CAE) of DG opportunities in New Zealand. The study was commissioned by industry partners and is intended to chart the likely development of DG within the context of the New Zealand electricity industry. The analysis framework uses data from actual case studies of DG projects, some of which have been successfully implemented, others not, to demonstrate the viability of DG under different circumstances. The analysis timeframe is out to the year 2015.
