Distributed energy resources integration – updating regulatory arrangements (ERC0309, ERC0310, ERC0311)

Our ‘Market alerts service’ provides customers with an overview of key industry developments. Each alert is issued following major legislative, regulatory and policy events, as well as rule changes and market reviews.

Our alerts provide a concise and clear 3 – 6 page summary of the issues alongside any potential impacts for market players. The ‘Market alerts service’ is ideal for organisations who want to remain up-to-date with modifications in the industry, without needing to utilise valuable time digesting and analysing the lengthy primary rule changes or policy adjustment materials. Additionally, the alerts act as a useful archive of market issues making this the perfect reference and training tool within your organisation.

On average, we produce between 15 – 25 alerts a year. However, this is heavily dependent on market operator and government announcements. More recently, the frequency and volume of changes have skyrocketed as a result of the energy transformation process the sector is currently undergoing.

The main function of the alerts is to help your business navigate and digest complex rule changes, allowing you to continue to focus on your daily activities. The alerts will give you peace of mind knowing your team are receiving relevant, concise and clear information to make informed decisions, and instigate change in a timely manner. This is particularly important when it comes to staying compliant with statutory and other legislative requirements.

In early July 2020, the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) received three rule change requests that aim to better facilitate the efficient integration of distributed energy resources (DER) for the grid of the future. These rule changes include:
  • ERC0309 – Network planning and access for distributed energy resources
  • ERC0310 – Allowing DNSPs to charge for exports to the network
  • ERC0311 – Access, pricing and incentive arrangements for distributed energy resources
The AEMC initiated these rule change requests on 30 July 2020. Given the similar subject matter and timings within the consultation process, the three rule change requests will be considered under the one Market Alert.
