Post 2025 DER Implementation Plan – commencement of design and implementation process

Publication date

The ESB published a scope of works and forward workplan for Horizon One of the Post 2025 DER Implementation Plan, identifying key issues to be addressed, reform activities, and details about how stakeholders can engage. 

National Cabinet endorsed the Post 2025 DER Implementation Plan in October 2021. It has instructed the ESB to move forward with the 3-year reform road map to unlock value for customers from the integration of DERs and flexible demand into energy markets. This move will commence with customer insights collaborations and forums. 

The ESB is also seeking feedback from interested parties to highlight where other key customer issues or linkages may exist across these activities to support development of reforms in Horizon One. Feedback can be provided by email to info@esb.org.au

The ESB will also be engaging directly with customer groups, peak bodies and other interested organisations on the Horizon One agenda in the new year.

In parallel with delivering the DER Implementation Plan reforms, the ESB is facilitating a Customer Insights Collaboration. The collaboration will work with customer groups and industry stakeholders on key cross-cutting customer issues that have implications for DER reform development and implementation.

Horizon One of the collaboration will run for the first half of 2022 and focus on barriers to customer reward for DER and flexible energy use. 

The ESB today published 2 items ahead of collaborative stakeholder workshops commencing in late February 2022:

  • a call for evidence about barriers to customers being rewarded for DER and flexible energy use to inform a knowledge sharing report about insights from industry trials, customer and industry research, and other sources
  • an invitation to express an interest in being a member of the Stakeholder Steering Group that will help guide the collaboration and work through the insights that are revealed as part of Release One.   

Responses to the call for evidence and the invitation to express an interest in the Stakeholder steering Group can be made by email to info@esb.org.au by 24 January 2022.
