The Australian Energy Regulatory (AER) has published an Explanatory Statement on transmission charges for energy storage systems.
We have published this statement in response to stakeholder feedback during our consultation on AEMO’s pricing methodology.
This statement is designed to provide greater clarity on transmission charging arrangements for energy storage and transmission network customers more generally.
In short, transmission-connected energy storage can choose the service they need. The chosen service, in turn, determines the type of prices the customer pays.
The Explanatory Statement is relevant across the National Electricity Market.
