Distributed energy resourcesProject Pricing and Integration of Distributed Energy Resources
On 15 October 2019, Oakley Greenwood presented a knowledge sharing webinar on their ‘Pricing and Integration of Distributed Energy Resources’ study. This summary provides the key takeaways from the webinar.
In February 2019, ARENA awarded $9.6 million in funding to 12 projects and studies to investigate further integrating distributed energy resources (DER) into the electricity system.
The Oakley Greenwood ‘Pricing and Integration of Distributed Energy Resources’ study analyses the regulatory and economic environment for DER in the National Electricity Market (NEM) and internationally. The aim of the study is to determine the optimal way to provide price signals that reflect the value of services DER can provide to the electricity supply chain. Creating appropriate market signals can incentivise stakeholders to invest in locations where DER is most needed and deploy DER when and how it is of most value.
