About the API

The Consumer Data Right (CDR) APIs allow Registered Financially Responsible Market Participants (FRMPs) to service API requests for AEMO data from Accredited Data Recipients.

The CDR APIs consist of a set of APIs defined by the Consumer Data Standards Body (DSB) for energy secondary data holders here.  

As permitted under provisions for Shared Responsibility Data Requests, additional mandatory parameters have been specified under API request headers to allow for AEMO security protocols. 

Registered FRMPs can use the following APIs to obtain AEMO held consumer data for Consumer Data Right purposes only in response to requests from an Accredited Data Recipient. 

  1. getServicePoints – request high level standing data for multiple NMIs 

  2. getServicePointDetail – request detailed standing data for a single NMI 

  3. getDERForServicePoint – request distributed energy resource information for a single NMI 

  4. getDERForSpecificServicePoints – request distributed energy resource information for multiple NMIs 

  5. getUsageForServicePoint – request up to 24 months of meter data for a single NMI

  6. getUsageForSpecificServicePoints – request up to 24 months of meter data for multiple NMIs.

Getting Access

To use the CDR APIs Participants must:  

  1. Be a Registered Financially Responsible Market Participant (FRMP) with a Participant ID 

  2. Have an MSATS user ID with the required Participant User Rights Management (URM) entity granted to it 

  3. Register with AEMO to use APIs 

During formal onboarding, you will first be given access to Pre-Production and must complete your development/testing there prior to getting access to Production.
