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.
Draft report and consultation
On 19 September 2019 the Panel published its draft report recommending a range of changes to the template to incorporate changes made by the AEMC in its 2018 Generator technical performance standards rule change, and update the template to reflect changes in technology, cost, and improve stakeholder experience.
The Panel’s draft recommendations reflect recommendations made by GHD in its advice to the Panel on changes to the template.
The Panel is seeking stakeholder submissions on the contents of the draft report until 18 October 2019.
A final review report and amended template will be published in November 2019.
