The Australian Energy Market Commission will allow large industrial users of electricity to participate in the demand-response market directly rather than via an electricity retailer. The AEMC’s draft ruling has been welcomed by Federal Energy Minister Angus Taylor, while Australian Competition & Consumer Commission chairman Rod Sims says it will result in lower electricity prices for consumers. The AEMC will accept submissions on the draft ruling until 12 September, with a final ruling to be issued by mid-November.
