The AEMC is in the process of considering a rule change request from the City of Sydney, Total Environment Centre and the Property Council of Australia. The proposal is to introduce a payment (a ‘local generation network credit’) from distribution networks to embedded generators, which reflects any benefits embedded generators may provide to the network.

The AEMC is holding a number of workshops to help inform our assessment of the proposal. These workshops represent one of a number of opportunities stakeholders will have to engage with the AEMC on this rule change request, and to share their views on the proposal.

The first workshop – on identifying the key issues and establishing criteria to guide any potential solution – was held on 25 February 2016 in Brisbane. The second workshop – on considering the proposed solution and potential alternatives – will be held in Sydney on Tuesday 15 March 2016.

Registration for the second workshop is now open. Please click here to register.
