Emerging Generation and Energy Storage – Grid Scale
The Emerging Generation and Energy Storage (EGES) work identifies improvements to the regulatory arrangements for registration and participation of grid-scale resources in the National Electricity Market (NEM). This work has identified challenges and opportunities facing proponents of new generation and load business models and the impact on Market Participants, including improving the NEM’s arrangements to facilitate better integration of grid-scale energy storage and ‘hybrid’ models.
AEMO has published a stakeholder paper with potential NEM improvements (see key documents below) and held stakeholder sessions to discuss and obtain feedback on the key topics presented in this paper. Stakeholder submissions to this paper closed on 4 December 2018 and can be found here.
AEMO is considering this stakeholder feedback as it develops its work program. This is will cover any National Electricity Rules (NER), procedures, registration applications, AEMO IT system changes, and future stakeholder engagement opportunities.
AEMO considers this work a priority because we anticipate continued growth in the connection and registration of energy storage technologies to support variable or renewable generation and, more broadly, the national grid.
