Wholesale Demand Response Guidelines draft determination Alternative formats available on request to PIAC - Contact PIAC
PIAC responded to the Australian Energy Market Operator’s (AEMO) draft determination on Guidelines (the Guidelines) for Wholesale Demand Response.
PIAC highlights wholesale demand response benefits energy consumers at a system and individual level as well as the broader community by reducing emissions and helping with the transition of the energy system. While relatively minor at the outset, the value to consumers and the market of demand response will grow as the WDR mechanism is established and matures. These benefits and AEMO’s role in realising them through the design and operation of the WDR market should be reflected in the Guidelines.
We provide feedback on AEMO’s approach to the design and implementation process, system security, telemetry and communications, regional thresholds and other matters.
