This workstream is part of the AEMC’s ongoing program to support the continual evolution of the energy sector.
On an annual basis and under terms of reference from the COAG Energy Council, the Commission monitors key trends in grid usage as well as development and uptake of new technologies and business models.
The focus of the 2019 review is the integration of distributed energy resources into the energy market system, which is one of our strategic priority areas of reform.
In this year’s report, the Commission sets out a range of options to create more dynamic markets and manage network challenges created by increasing penetration rates of distributed energy resources. We highlight work that is already underway to implement distributed energy resources effectively, what we are planning to do next and whether we see any gaps.
