Have your say on the draft Behind the Meter Code of Conduct

Have your say on the draft Behind the Meter Code at these upcoming technical forums

Wed 30 Jan 2019, Melbourne | Thu 31 Jan 2019, Brisbane

Following the Behind the Meter (BTM) Code Stakeholder Consultation forums in Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in December, you are invited to attend one of two technical forums to be held in January 2019.

Aim of the Technical Forums

These forums are aimed at obtaining more technical feedback than the industry consultations and will cover more specific areas to be addressed in the Schedules to the BTM Code.

The forums will focus on the following topics:

  • Solar
  • Batteries and energy storage
  • Electric vehicles
  • Demand response
  • Home energy management systems

Feedback from these sessions will be used as input to draft the detailed schedules under section D of the code.

Draft Behind the Meter Code of Conduct

Please follow the links below to download a PDF of the draft code of practice, and a briefing pack explaining how the code was developed.

Your say is important

If you cannot make it to a forum, you can submit your feedback on the draft BTM Industry Code to [email protected] by Wednesday 6 February 2019.

Once the submission process is complete, we will keep you updated on how we are using your feedback to finalise and implement the BTM Industry Code.


In 2017 a Behind the Meter (BTM) Working Group, of which we are a member organisation, was established to develop a draft code of practice for the industry in relation to 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, but we need to make sure that we do the right thing by current and future customers. They should feel confident to make well informed decisions about behind the meter (BTM) products and seek out a trustworthy provider.

Together, the member organisations of the BTM Working Group, which consists of 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. The draft code is a starting point and not a final endorsement. We can not finalise it without feedback from the wider industry and its networks.

For more information, contact the Smart Energy Council or any of the organisations listed above.
