Consultation overview

The SA Government, on behalf of the Equipment Energy Efficient (E3) Program, sought feedback from stakeholders and interested parties on a Consultation Paper (August 2019) on mandating certain electrical appliances to be demand response capable for both Australia and New Zealand.

This work aims to contribute to reducing the future investment requirements for electricity network, generation and transmission infrastructure due to growth in peak electricity demand.  The project also aims to address network costs arising from the rapid growth in customer-side electricity generation, by facilitating the development of the demand response market.
