Market Review: Open
The Reliability Panel is undertaking a review of the template for generator compliance programs.
To maintain power system security in the national electricity market, generators must comply with the relevant technical standards. The template provides clarity on what constitutes good electricity industry practice with respect to technical standard compliance and assists generators with developing and designing their compliance programs.
Terms of reference
On 26 February 2019 the AEMC issued terms of reference to the Reliability Panel to conduct a review of the template for generator compliance programs.
The review will focus on adjusting the template to:
- incorporate changes made by the AEMC in its 2018 Generator technical performance standards rule change, and
- reflect changes in technology, cost, stakeholder experiences, and any other factors relevant to compliance of generators with their technical requirements.
Scope and consultation
The Panel’s proposed scope and approach for the 2019 review is set out in an information sheet.
While we are not seeking stakeholder submissions, the Panel has engaged GHD to conduct a survey of generator experiences with the existing template.
The Panel will publish a draft review report in August 2019.
