Business Role (i.e. Manager, Administrative, Installer etc)
From 1 December 2019 Evoenergy will be required to provide information on every Distributed Energy Resource (DER) connected to our distribution network to the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) to feed into their DER Register.
Australia is the world’s fastest adopter of rooftop solar power (photovoltaics or PV) and new technologies, such as batteries and electric vehicles, are quickly emerging. These Distributed Energy Resources have been so successful in Australia that their combined effect is leading to an increasingly decentralised energy system, where a significant amount of electricity is generated at a smaller scale by our customers.
Knowing the locations and specifications of all the DER connected to the electricity grid is critical for sustaining a secure and reliable electricity supply for all Australians. AEMO is establishing an online DER (administered by distributors) Register to record and hold this data. The DER Register will assist AEMO to safely and effectively integrate all DER devices into the electricity grid and market. The coordination of these resources is vital in helping energy consumers to optimise their financial benefit and allow the electricity grid to efficiently manage the two-way power flow.
What does this mean?
The AEMO DER Register went live on 6th March 2020, which means that all new DER installations must now be recorded in AEMO’s DER Register portal within 20 business days of connection. The new DER Portal will collect the information required by AEMO, thereby removing your obligation to update AEMO’s DER Register.
