New technical standards for distributed energy resources

Last updated: 11 February 2022

This rule is dealing with standards on technical compliance when connecting Distributed Energy Resources (DER) to the electricity network.


The Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) announced that compulsory new standards are on the way for household energy technologies that connect to the power system, such as solar panels. It applies to all jurisdictions in the national electricity market and will take effect from 18 December 2021. 


The final rule amends the national energy regulator to require all new or replacement micro embedded generators – primarily rooftop solar systems – connecting to distribution networks to be compliant with the DER Technical Standards.
