This is another great example of Tesla flexing their muscles and disrupting traditional energy systems. They successfully did this recently with their 100MW storage project in South Australia and now they are looking to do the same with the world's largest virtual power plant. VPPs will play a significant role in the energy systems of the future. VPPs provide the best of both worlds, decentralised generation with ability to aggregate and share power when required. One of Hyperion's clients, sonnen, successfully launched their sonnenCommunity, eliminating the need for a conventional energy supplier as energy is shared and traded within a community of solar plus storage owners. 

These are the energy systems of the future, based on decentralised renewable generation with energy storage. Coal plants are closing at a rate of knots as they are no longer competitive on price. We are now seeing a monumental shift in how consumers access energy.
