AEMC – Power of Choice review
Monday, 10 December 2012 10:58
The Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) recently completed the Power of Choice review which explored the possibilities for demand side participation (DSP). The report outlined the use of DSP as an effective tool for the management of electricity consumption and in turn electricity costs. The review was undertaken in response to the lack of clear and effective price signals to the demand side and the inability to respond to such price signals.
Three key reforms can help achieve the efficient demand-supply balance in the market:
- Rewarding DSP in the wholesale market
- Providing appropriate consumer protection arrangements and gradually phasing in efficient and flexible pricing options
- Introduce competition in metering services and develop a framework for smart meters and their services
