Demand management innovation allowance

The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) provides funding to us through the Demand Management Innovation Allowance (DMIA) scheme. With this funding we are able to implement innovative research and development projects with a focus on demand management, that if successful, help to reduce long term network costs.

Several case studies highlighting how funding from DMIA has been utilised are listed below.

Partnering with us

We can partner with external parties to utilise the DMIA funding. Some of the types of organisations that may be interested in partnering with us are technology developers / providers, universities and research bodies, industry bodies, property developers, energy generators, retailers or other energy network operators.

All projects must meet certain funding criteria and you’ll need a project sponsor within Ergon Energy. Projects that align with our Future Grid Roadmap are encouraged.

If you are working on a research or development project with a focus on demand management, and would like to explore partnering with us and accessing the DMIA funding, please email or call 0467 774 409.

Case studies

To help share the findings and outcomes of DMIA projects, we prepare short case studies, which also include contact details for more information.  Below is a selection of some recently completed case studies.
