Our Working Group / Committee

Energy Policy & Regulatory

The overarching goal of the Policy Working group is to create a clear pathway forward for incorporating DER into both grid-connected and rural/remote microgrids.

The working group will focus on illustrating the opportunity microgrids provide in enabling reliability, sustainability, economic outcomes for customers. It will challenge traditional utility models that have been designed for risk mitigation and illustrate alternatives that include the utilisation of localised power production and storage.

The working group aims to ensure regulators understand the importance of microgrids for energy transformation, and will identify areas of regulation, compliance and standards that can support the sustainable and optimal introduction of microgrids around the world.

Only full IMA members can be part of the Energy Policy and Regulatory working group.
