Demand Response Funding Announcement Guidelines
A $37.5m Competitive Round in collaboration with the Australian Energy Market Operator was made available to drive innovation in grid management, in particular in the current context of increasing output from variable renewable energy generators and assist a range of energy users to become demand response-enabled for load reduction.
The Competitive Round is intended to provide funding to enable approximately 100MW of Demand Response capacity per annum over three years to be made available to AEMO for Activation under the SN RERT mechanism.
The NSW Government provided $7.5 million of funds towards the initiative.
