The intent of this paper is to aid ECA and other stakeholders engaging in energy market policy and regulatory processes to assess the extent to which the matter under consideration does, or does not, promote the Long Term Interests of Consumers.
In this paper ECA outlines principles for the consideration of the integration of energy storage in the context of the long term interests of consumers. The intention is to frame the approach that ECA will take in relation to further processes, including the AER review of the ring-fencing guideline.
ECA is committed to engaging, communicating and collaborating with all of our stakeholders, from consumer advocates and industry bodies, to jurisdictional and national governments and regulators.
ECA provides and enables strong, coordinated and collegiate advocacy on national energy market matters of strategic importance or material consequence for energy consumers.
From building expertise and capacity through research and consultation, to undertaking research to influence policy development and educate consumers, ECA supports innovative and high-quality evidence-based research in the energy sector.
