Submissions - Draft demand management incentive scheme, innovation allowance mechanism and consultation paper


We invited interested parties to make submissions on our draft demand management incentive scheme, draft demand management innovation allowance mechanism and early application rule change consultation paper. Submissions closed on Thursday 12 October 2017.

Stakeholder forum - Demand Management Feedback forum

On 8 November 2017, we held a Feedback Forum as a videoconference across AER/ACCC offices. The Forum provided stakeholders with another opportunity to provide input before the publication of the scheme and allowance mechanism in early December 2017. At the Forum, we discussed our plans to incorporate stakeholder submissions made on our draft decision into the final scheme and allowance mechanism.
