Demand management is an important part of efficient and sustainable network operations; and can help address a network need due to rising customer demand, aging network assets or other investment drivers. For projects not associated with the Regulatory Investment Test, Ausgrid applies a similar but simplified process appropriate to the cost of the project. You can find out more about Ausgrid's Regulatory Investment Test for Distribution (RIT-D) projects here.
Engaging and consulting with industry and market providers is an important part of the process of exploring non-network options to maintain grid reliability at lowest cost to consumers.
