Rooftop solar has grown rapidly over the last decade, numbers indicate that almost 10GW has been installed across the NEM.

In this week’s Chart of the week, we look at the impact of distributed energy resources (DER) on the distribution network. We also consider some of the challenges arising in efficiently managing the transition to a two-way market.
