More renewable technology will be able to be integrated into Australia's energy grid, thanks to a new state-of-the-art laboratory in Canberra.

The Australian National University's Distributed Energy Resources Lab, which was opened on Tuesday, will allow for researchers, energy companies and start-ups in the industry to test their technology in real-world settings before they become built in to the broader energy grid.

The laboratory has been a project more than two years in the making, with more than $1.5 million in funding provided by the ACT government.

Technologies such as battery storage systems, solar, wind and electric vehicles would be put through their paces at the lab.
