The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) has commenced developing a new demand management incentives scheme and a revised demand management innovation allowance mechanism. In January 2017, the AER published a Consultation Paper which set out a range of potential options for the design of both the scheme and innovation allowance.

AGL recent made this submission in response to the consultation paper.

The AER will be hosting a 'demand management options day' in April to further progress the development of this scheme building upon their stakeholder engagement to date.
