Three new reports have been released as part of an Alliance to Save Energy (A2SE) research study into the potential for energy efficiency, demand side management and distributed generation in electricity network planning.
The findings of the first systematic national survey of Demand Management (DM) undertaken by electricity network service providers in Australia, the Survey of Energy Network Demand Management in Australia (SENDMA), are presented in the first report.

The second report, completed in partnership with iGrid, summarises the results of the first survey to gather perceptions on barriers to the uptake of DM in Australia from DM stakeholders across the country.
