|2020 Retail energy competition review: electric vehicles - issues paper||881.28 KB|
As part of the AEMC’s annual Retail energy competition review, the Commission typically picks a specific technology and explores how it is interacting with retail energy markets. For example, last year’s review explored the interaction of behind the meter battery technology with retail markets. The goals from this analysis are twofold:
In the 2020 Retail energy competition review the Commission will explore electric vehicles (EV) as the technology to research. This is an appropriate time to look at EVs because uptake in Australia and around the world is growing rapidly due to declining costs and the introduction of government policies to encourage uptake. Given the potential considerable impact electrification of vehicles could have on the electricity market it is important to assess how retail energy competition is resulting in innovation related to the efficient use and uptake of electric vehicles.
This issues paper has been published to seek stakeholder views to inform this research.
