Distributed energy resourcesProject My Energy Marketplace
This report covers the key reflections to date including consumer data rights, communication with consumers and details of the MEM Data Advisory Panel.
The My Energy Marketplace (MEM) project, led by Wattwatchers Digital Energy and running over three years (2019 to 2022), is exploring a data-driven model for engaging and empowering electricity consumers to be active participants in a ‘digital-and-distributed New Energy marketplace’ that is now taking shape in Australia.
In particular, the MEM project focuses on residential and small business consumers, plus schools and school communities. One year in, the MEM has now deployed Wattwatchers and other smart energy management solutions to 280+ households, 40+ small businesses and 25+ schools. These are early-stage installations, including pilots and demonstrations, towards the full project deployment targets of 5,000 homes and small businesses, and 250 schools.
