Smart Grid, Smart City report

Here is a summary/commentary on the Smart Grid, Smart City report. Key points include:

  • network improvement recommendations;
  • pricing reform including mandated dynamic tariffs for customer initiated meter upgrades (incl. distributed energy uptake) and a safety net for financially vulnerable customers “who are unable to make behavioural or tariff changes”;
  • smart meters;
  • customer feedback technologies; and
  • a “market mechanism which more efficiently values export from distributed energy resources… during market and network peak events”.
