From an international perspective, the world is currently experiencing an industrial revolution in clean energy development.
Last year, $260 billion was invested in clean energy technologies internationally, with record levels of new investment in clean energy being realised each y
Properly designed and implemented, FiTs offer the best opportunity to address the substantial market failures that exist in the NEM with respect to the cost effective utilisation of solar PV.
As a policy mechanism, FiTs also offer the greatest potential for investment certainty for
The ATA strongly supports the Rule Change proposal and the intent behind achieving greater certainty for proponents of embedded generation projects with regards to costs, contractual obligations and timeframe.
Ultimately, the ATA’s view is that the NEM will only achieve true compet
The Alternative Technology Association (ATA) welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Department of Primary Industries’ (DPI’s) consultation on the re-inclusion of ceiling insulation into the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET) scheme.
The ATA is strongly supportive of the
ATA supports the notion that demand management and embedded connection activities ‘are likely to provide long term efficiency gains to energy consumers’ (p16) and therefore, that these activities are strongly aligned with the National Electricity Objective (NEO).
However, the propo
The Alternative Technology Association (ATA) welcomes the opportunity to respond to the AEMO Specification Consultation Report regarding its intended Regulatory Investment Test for Transmission (RIT-T) for increasing supply capability into Regional Victoria.
This submission is supp
ATA welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Victorian Competition and Efficiency Commission’s (VCEC) report Power from the People – Draft Report, Inquiry into Feed-in Tariffs & Barriers to Distributed Generation (‘the Draft Report’).
Firstly, ATA would like to congratulate VCEC
ATA’s view is that given the now overwhelming evidence in regards to the inefficient cost increases occurring in the NEM as a result of increasing peak demand, decreasing load factor, and an over-reliance on centralised electricity generation, a number of changes to the NER, and possi
The submission has been created as a collaborative document by a number of parties actively involved in the National Consumer Roundtable on Energy collective. These consumer-advocacy agencies welcome the opportunity to engage with the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism.
Properly designed and implemented, feed-in tariffs (FiTs) offer the best opportunity to capture the market failures that exist in the national electricity market (NEM) with respect to the cost effective utilisation of demand side activities such as distributed generation (DG). As a po
