- ItemDynamic Operating Envelopes Workstream
This report aims to inform future considerations by industry, governments, market bodies and regulators in the energy sector. It is a summary of consultation undertaken by the Distributed Energy Integration Program (DEIP) Dynamic Operating Envelope (DOE) Working Group to explore and advance the role of DOEs in Australia’s future power system.
This report focuses on the use of DOEs for export management and seeks to identify the current “state of play” of DOEs and capture the future policy, regulatory, technical and industry actions needed to implement a nationally consistent model for DOEs that will work in consumers’ interests.
While it is possible that DOEs could be used to manage ‘flexible loads’ such as water heaters, battery storage and electric vehicles (EVs), the implementation of import DOEs are likely to have additional issues that warrant further consideration and consultation. Therefore, the use of DOEs to manage electricity consumption is not in the scope of this paper.
