Emerging Generation and Energy Storage – Grid Scale
The Emerging Generation and Energy Storage (EGES) work identified improvements to the regulatory arrangements for registration and participation of grid-scale resources in the National Electricity Market (NEM). This work identified the challenges and opportunities facing proponents of new grid-scale generation and load business models, including improving the NEM’s arrangements to facilitate better integration of grid-scale energy storage systems (ESS) and ‘hybrid’ models.
AEMO considers this work a priority because we anticipate continued growth in the connection and registration of ESS energy storage technologies to support variable or renewable generation and, more broadly, the national grid.
As a part of this work, AEMO has submitted the following rule change proposals to the AEMC:
- Integrating Energy Storage Systems (ESS) into the NEM.
- Providing NEM information for project developers.
