Demand Side Engagement
Demand side management is an important part of efficient and sustainable network operations. It can involve either the moderation of customer electricity demand at peak times or the supply of electricity from generators connected at a customer's property or to the Queensland distribution network. Effective use of demand side management can reduce costs associated with managing the network and result in lower electricity bills.

Our Demand Side Engagement Register is a list of stakeholders interested in staying up to date about distribution network planning and expansion projects.
It’s our way of keeping you informed about how we’re investing in the network, and how you can get involved in future non-network initiatives.
Those companies or individuals who register will receive periodic communications about our research and projects, including notification of forthcoming RIT-D consultation opportunities.
Demand Side Engagement Strategy
We have a legislative requirement to allow customers to register their interest in being notified of developments relating to our demand management projects. To us, it’s more than just a requirement: it’s a responsibility we take seriously to ensure we are transparent in our dealings with customers, including non-network providers.
We engage with non-network providers to consider non-network solutions as alternatives to network investment. These demand side management initiatives contribute to lowering peak demand, as well as power storage projects. This helps us to reduce infrastructure costs for the longer term benefit of all stakeholders who access the network.
