Electricity Distribution Market Futures

Unlocking the ┼░ber of electricity distribution

Presented by Claire Richards (AEMC) and Veronika Nemes (MarketWise Solutions)

With an introduction from Tim Heberden, Director - IP Economics, Glasshouse Advisory

The uptake of rooftop solar PV, battery storage, electric vehicles, smart energy appliances and other technologies at the distribution level are having a significant impact on the way that consumers use electricity. These resources can provide services to different parts of the electricity system, including network businesses, the wholesale market and consumers themselves.

The Australian Energy Market Commission’s recent report explores the path to the development of a market for the provision of distributed energy services. Participants of such a market are likely to include consumers, retailers, aggregators, technology providers, network operators, system operators and market operators.

Join us for an evening of insight and discussion about the features of an effective distribution level electricity market and the next steps towards the empowerment of active consumers in such a market.

Clair Richards, Senior Advisor – Security and Reliability (AEMC) will discuss the results of the AEMC’s recent Distribution market model report. This report outlines the key characteristics and enablers for a future where investment in and operation of distributed energy resources is optimised to the greatest extent possible.

Veronika Nemes, Director (MarketWise Solutions) will present her perspective on how the economic design of a distribution level electricity market may create electricity trading opportunities that could deliver benefits to society.
