Distributed energy resources
This documents summarise the key themes of the DEIP Dynamic Operating Envelopes Working Group consumer Perspectives Workshop held on 22 October 2020.
The Distributed Energy Integration Program (DEIP) is exploring the value that dynamic operating envelopes (DOEs) could offer to the energy transition. This workstream aims to:
- build a shared understanding of the opportunities and challenges
- share insights on approaches currently under investigation
- identify reforms that could be implemented to establish dynamic operating envelopes.
The workstream is led by a DEIP Working Group consisting of representatives from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, Energy Security Board, Australian Energy Market Operator, Australian Energy Regulator, Australian Energy Market Commission, Australian National University and SA Power Networks.
On 22 October 2020, the Working Group brought together over 100 participants from across the industry — consumer groups, networks, research organisations, market bodies, retailers, aggregators and other organisations — to discuss consumer perspectives on DOEs.
Participants discussed what is needed to make DOEs a positive consumer experience and considered important criteria for fair and equitable DOE allocations. This document summarises those discussions.
