The competition watchdog, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has granted new interim authorisation for an expanded range of measures allowing participants in the gas and electricity markets to work together to help safeguard energy supply during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Australian Government says it has set reasonable expectations of energy companies to protect householders and small business customers during the COVID-19 pandemic, and will closely monitor retailer and network compliance with measures put in place by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER).
The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) has announced $2.7 million in funding for digital energy technology company Wattwatchers to develop a consumer-facing energy data hub - ‘My Energy Marketplace’ - that will give greater visibility over household energy use.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
