Aurora Energy

Open Call Non Network Capacity Support - Upper Clutha Area

We are getting in touch to invite you to participate in our Open Call for non-network solutions in the Upper Clutha area of Otago (Cromwell to Wanaka) and help manage growth on this part of our network.

Aurora Energy is the electricity distributor in Otago (we also have networks in Dunedin and Queenstown Lakes) and we are seeking new partners and innovative solutions for future management of our electricity network, to help drive New Zealand’s efforts towards a decarbonised energy future.

We are inviting all distributed energy resource providers, owners, flexibility traders, retailers, generators and new market entrants to contribute to our decarbonised energy future. This is being done through an Open Call, meaning you will have the time and opportunity to get involved, with no restrictive timeframes.

We are currently looking for non-network solutions in the Upper Clutha area (Cromwell to Wanaka), to help manage growth on this part of the network.

Aurora Energy is part of the South Island Distribution Group, which is a collaboration of the electricity distribution businesses across the South Island that are looking at the future of electricity distribution management, including how to incorporate innovative ways to manage capacity and peak demands. This includes seeking to understand how non-network solutions could be used as part of the network management mix, and whether the use of distributed energy resources could become a powerful contributor to transforming the distribution energy system by identifying new ways to help drive NZ’s decarbonisation goals.

Aurora Energy’s Open Call for non-network support in the Upper Clutha area comes as part of its membership to, and initiatives of, the South Island Distribution Group.
