The purpose of this guidance note is to provide clarity on the regulatory framework necessary to facilitate the effective implementation of export limits. Flexible export limits are one of many tools that can be used by distribution network service providers (DNSPs) to manage network hosting capacity. The goal is to better use network hosting capacity and enhance the efficiency of deployment of consumer energy resources within the system, thereby benefiting all participants within the network.
On 17 November 2023 the AER has published the draft export limit interim guidance note for consultation. The objective of this draft interim guidance note is to identify and provide clarity on the regulatory framework necessary to facilitate the effective implementation of export limits.
