What do we look for in projects?

Our Investment Plan has identified flexible demand as a key focus area under our strategic priority to optimise the transition to renewable electricity. To accelerate the opportunities offered by demand flexibility, we are seeking projects that can provide new flexible demand capacity.

We welcome proposals for projects that:

  • involve ‘load shaping’ and/or ‘load shifting’ to align customer electricity demand with variable renewable energy
  • demonstrate bi-directional flexibility in end-use customer loads and not rely solely on battery storage and/or solar curtailment
  • demonstrate innovation in customer incentives that result in greater demand side participation in the energy market
  • are capable of responding to minimum demand including in response to AEMO Minimum Demand Level 1 (MSL 1) market notices.
