What is DEIP?

ARENA projects

The Distributed Energy Integration Program (DEIP) is a collaboration of government agencies, market authorities, industry and consumer associations aimed at maximising the value of customers’ distributed energy resources (DER) for all energy users.

Led by a steering group, the forum is driven by the premise that exchanging information and collaborating on DER issues will more efficiently identify knowledge gaps and priorities, as well as accelerate reforms in the interest of customers.

DEIP Dynamic Operating Envelopes

The Distributed Energy Integration Program is exploring the value that dynamic operating envelopes 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.

DEIP Access and Pricing

The Distributed Energy Integration Program Access and Pricing Work Package examines how network regulations could evolve so that consumers get the best value from innovations in distributed energy.

The outcomes report summarises the views expressed throughout consultations held in 2019. It highlights areas of strong stakeholder alignment that governments, market bodies, regulators can consider when undertaking distributed energy access and pricing reforms.

DEIP EV Working Group

The Electric Vehicle Grid Integration Working Group is considering how a growing number of electric vehicles can be integrated into Australia’s electricity system. This workstream aims to:

  • provide a central forum for key industry and government stakeholders to collaborate and coordinate EV activities
  • approach EVs from an energy sector perspective but with transport and infrastructure partners
  • promote policy and regulatory development before wide scale EV adoption begins.

DEIP Standards, Data and Interoperability

The Standards, Data and Interoperability Working Group brings together a broad range of industry stakeholders and consumer group representatives to develop specific requirements around the standards, data and interoperability capabilities for DER.

The key mission of the working group is to support the development and implementation of industry technical standards, guidelines or protocols to support the safe and reliable integration of DER into the Australian electricity system, in a manner that maximises value for customers.
