The workstream engaged with industry through several collaboration activities to:

  • define customer centred, equitable and efficient network access and pricing principles
  • consider alternative DER access and pricing models
  • support the creation of momentum for any necessary reforms


The Access and Pricing Working Group facilitated an industry consultation process which involved three workshops attended by 120 continuing participants and six reference group meetings attended by 30 industry representatives. The Working Group consisted of:

  • Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS)
  • Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC)
  • Australian Energy Regulator (AER)
  • Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA)
  • Energy Consumers Australia (ECA)
  • Energy Networks Australia (ENA)
