What Is An Embedded Network?
Embedded networks aggregate the energy consumed within a complex to a single point, enabling wholesale energy procurement. The WINconnect approach delivers benefits to developers, owners corporations, asset owners as well as the end consumer. Embedded Networks provide a platform for shared solar and storage solutions.
Sub-meters measure tenants’ and common area consumption respectively, using the latest in smart interval metering technology. This form of high-quality, certified sub-meter is used by local network service providers (LNSP) across Australia, meeting the stringent metrology code imposed on all providers operating in the national electricity market (NEM)
Embedded networks commonly involve the following key participants:
- Tenants/Owner Occupiers– Every occupancy has a market compliant meter with full power of choice.
- Common Area– Public light and power is separately metered enabling full reconciliation with the gate meter.
- Gate Meter– The gate meter records the total energy consumed within the embedded network.
Our billing systems are comparable to the major electricity retailers, but afford us the flexibility to respond quickly to market changes like the introduction of new tariffs or changes to the regulatory environment. We have a multi-lingual call centre based in Melbourne proudly assisting Australia’s multi-cultural market.
WINconnect closely follows regulators’ rules and guidelines in order to establish safe, compliant electrical embedded networks.
All our EN’s are set up to facilitate the ‘power of choice’ allowing the end consumer to opt out of the embedded network and purchase from another energy retailer as an ‘on market’ customer.
WINconnect indemnifies the owners corporation of any bad debt at the gate meter utilising its market participant status issued by AEMO (Australian Energy Market Operator)
We hold electricity retailer authorisations in Vic, SA, NSW, Qld and an Australian Financial Services License and are members of the respective ombudsman schemes.
On numerous occasions WINconnect has fared well under the microscope of 3rd party tender evaluations.
