Australia Funds Demand Response Program to Secure Grid Stability
2017/11/27
On October 11, the Australia’s Turnbull Government announced that through the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), it is providing Australian dollar (AU$) 28.6 million (about US$ 22 million) funding for a new trial with the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) which will deliver 200 MW of capacity to help secure the electricity grid during times of peak demand.
 
A further AU$ 7.2 million (about US$ 5.5 million) provided by the New South Wales (NSW) Coalition Government will help fund NSWbased projects.
 
Over the next three years, 10 pilot projects across Victoria, South Australia, and New South Wales will receive funding under a demand response initiative to voluntarily reduce power consumption for short periods, freeing up temporary electricity supply during extreme peaks such as summer heatwaves or during extreme weather events and emergencies.
