The first compliance period for the Peak Demand Reduction Scheme (PDRS) is from 1 November 2022 through to 31 March 2023.
As a Scheme Participant, you must calculate and report your individual liable demand for the compliance period by 15 October 2023. If you don’t report your individual liable demand we will make a default assessment to allow us to calculate scheme liable demand.
Individual liable demand is calculated by dividing your total liable acquisitions (in megawatt hours) for the 4 peak days in the compliance period (see the Four peak days page) by the total number of hours in the peak period (i.e. 6 hours/day x 4 days) and converting to kilowatts as follows:
More information about liable acquisitions is available on the Liable acquisitions and exempt loads page. We are developing a new online system to allow you to report your individual liable demand directly to us. More information about the new system will be available ahead of the new system launch.
