Behind-the-meter forums

The Behind the Meter (BTM) Working Group, of which Renew is a member organisation, was established in 2017 to develop a draft code of practice for behind-the-meter products such as solar, battery energy storage systems, electric vehicle charging products, energy management systems and software, and other emerging products and services for homes and businesses.

The industry is growing at an impressive rate, and we need to make sure that it is doing the right thing. Customers should feel confident to make well-informed decisions about behind-the-meter products and seek out trustworthy providers.

The member organisations of the BTM Working Group, which consists of the Australian Energy Council, Clean Energy Council, Consumer Action Law Centre, Energy Consumers Australia, Energy Networks Australia, Public Interest Advocacy Centre, Renew and Smart Energy Council have drafted a code reflective of the needs of the broad industry.
