#BetterTogether - DEIP Access and Pricing Package

Overview of the DEIP Access Pricing Package initiative

Supported the Distributed Energy Integration Program (DEIP) to explore the economic regulatory framework for electricity networks can evolve to meet changing community expectations and build consensus on equitable and efficient Distributed Energy Resources (solar, batteries, electric vehicles) access and pricing models, focused on customer-centric principles.

Who collaborated on this initiative?

Led by ARENA, Australian Council of Social Services, Australian Energy Market Commission, Australian Energy Regulator, Energy Consumers Australia, Total Environment Centre and supported by AGL, Ausgrid, Endeavour Energy, Energy Queensland, Essential Energy, Horizon Power, Origin Energy and TransGrid

What were the outcomes?

Submitted a rule change request to the AEMC that reflected discussions and findings from the DEIP Access and Pricing Package. On 12 August 2021, the AEMC’s final Rule Change on Smart Solar was released. The reforms are designed to get more small-scale solar and batteries into the grid.
