Post 2025 DER Implementation Plan – interoperability policy framework

Publication date

As part of delivering the Post 2025 DER Implementation Plan, the ESB is seeking stakeholder views on an assessment framework to inform consideration of the trade-offs involved in applying relevant technical standards relating to inverter-based DER devices.

This work contributes to Post 2025 DER Implementation Plan outcomes about supporting customers to:

  • easily switch between DER service providers
  • get the most value from their DER assets through interoperability between DER devices and supporting systems and process interfaces.

The assessment framework has been prepared for ESB by FTI Consulting and is published as an accompanying document to the ESB consultation. 

Submissions are due by 3 February 2022. A stakeholder workshop will be held on 17 February 2022 at 10-12pm. AEDT. Interest can be registered by email to
