Views sought on EV smart charging

As part of the DER (distributed energy resources) Implementation Plan, the Energy Security Board (ESB) has been tasked with developing policy advice regarding what technical foundations are necessary to support the effective integration of smart charging for EVs into the National Electricity Market (NEM).

The ESB’s Electric Vehicle Smart Charging Issues Paper seeks stakeholder views on a range of issues relating to the development of effective arrangements for EV smart charging in both domestic and public settings, including the need for:

  • residential equipment standards and an intention, where possible, to promote alignment across jurisdictions;
  • consideration of international experience/settings to consider how relevant settings could be developed/adapted in the NEM;
  • interoperability standards — supporting residential interoperability and remotely managed smart-charging capabilities; and
  • policy settings that allow for the growth of private investment in public charging.

Stakeholders are invited to register to attend a webinar outlining the reforms explored in the paper on Tuesday, 2 August 2022, with submissions on the paper due by 19 August 2022.

To register for the webinar, visit the AEMC website.
