The Demand Management Trials Program is allocating $11 million of funding towards activities aimed at advancing the use of demand response and distributed energy resources to benefit both customers and the grid.
Grants for trials of demand response, demand aggregation and integrating distributed generation assets
The South Australian Government is funding trials that can show how new and distributed technologies can help make the grid more efficient and reward consumers for managing their own demand.
Applications for the grants for demand management trials close on 14 December 2018. Under this program, grants of up to $2.5 million are available, with applicants expected to at least match the amount of grant funding being sought. Grants will be allocated through a competitive process based on the merit of applications.
Applications should be submitted using the application form ().
Businesses and other organisations can register their interest receiving further communications about the Demand Management Trials Program by emailing DMTrials@sa.gov.au
It is anticipated that successful applicants will be notified in early 2019.
