AER: new demand management scheme for consumers and distributors
“Electricity consumers will have more choice and be able to get more value from technology that helps them manage their household electricity use under a new demand management incentive scheme released today.
The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) estimates that if electricity distributors fully subscribe to the new scheme, demand management investment of up to $1bn over five years may be realised. Increased take up of demand management measures by electricity network businesses and consumers will lead to a reduction in the need for costly infrastructure spending and accordingly put downward pressure on prices, benefitting the whole community.”
