AEMC: Distribution market model project draft report (submissions by 4 July 2017).
The AEMC has outlined a vision for a competitive ‘distribution market’ which enables consumers to get the most value out of their rooftop solar panels, batteries and other distributed energy resources as we move to a lower emissions future.
The draft report describes how an independent ‘optimising’ function would help consumers with distributed energy resources make decisions on the best use of these assets. The report suggests that the optimising function should be undertaken by parties other than regulated network businesses to allow the multiple value streams – from retail, network and wholesale markets – to be realised.
Submissions in response to the draft report are open until 4 July 2017.
