The AEMC has extended the date for publishing our final report on integrating solar, batteries and other new energy technology until 12 August.

The Commission has been encouraged by the response to, and interest in, the proposed reforms and has received a large number of diverse views as part of the submissions process.

“Stakeholders have presented us with valuable and differing options – exploring these fully deserves some more time,” AEMC Chair Anna Collyer said.

“Extending the publication date for a further month will help us work through the key considerations.”

The Commission is looking ahead to ensure the grid is future-ready to accommodate the predicted growth of rooftop solar and can effectively integrate new technology like home batteries and electric vehicles.

“We are committed to designing a long-term solution that works for all energy consumers,” Ms Collyer said.
