The Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) is working on reform that aims to unlock the full potential of consumer resources (CER) such as rooftop solar, batteries and electric vehicles for customers who have CER assets as well as customers without.

The AEMC has extended the period of time for making the draft report on the Unlocking CER Benefits through Flexible Trading rule change. This is now expected to be published by 29 February 2024.

The extension will allow more time address feedback raised by stakeholders in response to the directions paper. Further time will also allow the AEMC to coordinate consumer energy resources work streams in a way that offers greater benefits for consumers and the system more broadly.

The AEMC will continue to engage with a range of stakeholders through public forums, meetings, and technical working groups in delivery of a draft rule determination.
