AER publishes review of DMIS reports for the 2014, 2013-14 and 2014-15 reporting periods

Last month, the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) published it’s review of the Demand Management Incentive Scheme (DMIS) reports submitted by a number of recipients for the 2014, 2013-14 and 2014-15 reporting periods. The Demand Management Incentive Scheme (DMIS) is a research and development fund which aims to provide incentives for Distribution Network Service Providers (DNSPs) to conduct research and investigation into innovative techniques for managing demand.

The AER approved DMIA carryover amount adjustment for ActewAGL, Ausgrid, Endeavour Energy, Energex, Ergon Energy, Essential Energy, and SA Power Networks. Additionally, if a distributor has not spent its DMIA allowance in a regulatory period, it will be required to return the amount of any underspend or unapproved amounts to customers in the form of tariff reduction in the following regulatory period.

The AER’s Demand management innovation allowance assessment report can be found here.
