Distributed energy resources
The Australian Council of Social Services (ACOSS) and the Total Environment Centre (TEC), the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) and Energy Consumers Australia (ECA) are working under the Distributed Energy Integration Program (DEIP) to deliver three workshops on the theme of distributed energy resource (DER) network access and pricing.
The workshops aim to develop a holistic suite of equitable and efficient network access and pricing solutions, underpinned by clearly defined energy user-centric design principles that have broad support and can inform policy and regulatory changes. The workshops include more than 120 participants from government, industry, associations, market bodies and regulators, in addition to a cross-section of energy-user customer representative groups.
The second workshop was held in Melbourne on 28 November 2019. The purpose of the workshop was to begin identifying energy user-centred options for reform to DER access and pricing that will better integrate DER into the energy system to optimise outcomes for energy users.
