Reserve and Emergency Reliability Reserve Trader

New revenue and a more reliable grid supply

Get paid to support a reliable grid 

The Reserve and Emergency Reliability Reserve Trader (RERT) is a mechanism run by the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) to help manage significant shortfalls in supply of electricity to consumers.  

These shortfalls are generally caused by unplanned or extreme events. This might include a combination of high demand, extreme weather, natural disasters, generation or transmission outages, or critical infrastructure maintenance.  

Under this mechanism business can be paid to reduce their demand on the grid. This could involve switching to back-up generators or reducing electricity consumption. 

VIOTAS can manage participation of consumers in RERT, making it a simple and straight forward to make money to support operation of the electricity grid.
