The work undertaken by advocates and other organisations through the Grants Program is having influence, improving outcomes for energy consumers. Great Grants showcase important work that has built new evidence or demonstrated impact.
The DER Export Management Advocacy Project has been selected as one of our Great Grants.
This project by Renew aimed to demonstrate the value of a consumer voice in network decision-making, and how it adds systemic value by ensuring consumers are at the heart of regulatory and program development.
The project has generated constructive and productive relationships with energy distributors and market bodies, and pointed the way to maximise the benefit of distributed energy in electricity networks for consumers. It also helped position Renew as an authoritative and expert voice with its approach to building consensus.
The main report Enabling Distributed Energy in Electricity Networks is available here.
