Distributed energy resourcesProject My Energy Marketplace
This Interim Public Knowledge Sharing report details the development of a consumer-facing energy data platform.
Now at its halfway point, My Energy Marketplace (MEM) is an innovative ‘New Energy’ initiative led by Wattwatchers Digital Energy (Wattwatchers). It is an $8 million-plus, three-year, Australia-wide project that is supported by a $2.7 million grant from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA).
The project lies at the intersection of three key clean energy transition themes: distributed renewables, digitalisation and consumer empowerment within the electricity system. Key elements of MEM delivery are:
- Installation of Wattwatchers smart energy management devices at 5,000 homes and small businesses, plus 250 schools, and also enrolment of 1,500 non-Wattwatchers devices
- Development of a smart energy mobile app
- Development of a consumer-facing ‘energy data hub’ (i.e. the ‘Marketplace’)
