In November 2019, AGL made a submission on IPART’s draft reports on the performance and competitiveness of the retail electricity and gas markets in NSW for 2018-19.
In a previous article, we explored at how the energy mix is changing, and how lower-cost-renewables are creating a demand profile that is marked by peaks and troughs. Now we take a look at how the future of energy storage can help manage that changing demand profile.
AGL recently made a submission in response to the Australian Energy Market Operator’s Issues Paper, Customer switching in the NEM. A copy of our submission is available here.
Today is the United Nations’ International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. As a company with 3.7 million customers and 3,700 employees, we have the power to make a real impact towards achieving respect and equality for all – which is why we must speak up to stamp out Family and Domestic Violence (FDV) in Australia.
AGL submission on emergency reserves in Victoria AGL has made a submission on a rule change that would allow emergency reserves (RERT) to be procured for up to three years in Victoria.
AGL recently responded to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) consultation on the Privacy Safeguard Guideline for the Consumer Data Right (CDR).
More than 30 km of heavy-duty conveyer belts support the Latrobe Valley’s Loy Yang A power station in Victoria – and invariably, these conveyer belts get damaged and have to be repaired. The 50-80 repairs – or belt splices – that are completed each year are carried out by contractors from Belle Banne Conveyer Services. After a spate of knife-injuries at parent company Fenner Dunlop, they asked – is it possible to make these repairs without knives, and decrease the injury rate?
In this new world where supply and consumption of electricity is ‘contestable’ – that is, where participants can buy from and sell to whomever will give them the best deal – a new, critical piece of the puzzle was needed. In 1998, the National Electricity Market (NEM) was created.
AGL does not consider that the case has been made to move ahead now with a substantial redesign of NEM at this time. We consider the proposed arrangements contain considerable implementation risks that have not been fully considered, and which risk reducing market liquidity, efficiency and investor confidence.
Diversity in our ideas and our people is important – but more than that, it’s vital to foster viable career pathways that the best and brightest of the next generation want to pursue. That’s why we’re connecting with young STEM students and leaders – the innovators who will shape the world’s technical, social, and commercial future. We’re also leading the way when it comes to improving gender equality in energy.

AGL Energy (AGL) welcomes the opportunity to comment on the Australian Energy Market Commission’s (AEMC) consultation paper on the proposed Primary Frequency Response (PFR) rule changes ERC0263, ERC0274, and ERC0277.
AGL Energy (AGL) welcomes the opportunity to provide feedback on the Australian Energy Market Commission’s (AEMC’s) draft determination into Reducing Customers’ Switching Times (project number ERC0276/RRC0031).
The influx of utility-scale renewables and rooftop solar means there’s a greater need for highly flexible firming energy sources which can be activated at a moment’s notice during times of high demand. The Barker Inlet Power Station (or BIPS) is nearing the final stages of construction, and it exemplifies this firming capacity.
AGL Energy (AGL) welcomes the opportunity to provide comment on the Review of the South Australian (SA) Residential Energy Efficiency Scheme (REES) Directions Paper, published by the Department for Energy and Mining (the Department) in October 2019.
