The Australian Energy Market Commission today invited stakeholder submissions on the draft determination for a rule change request, submitted by Snowy Hydro, relating to the standard for compliance with dispatch instructions.
The AEMC has made a draft determination to not make a Rule to change the standard for compliance by generators and other market participants with dispatch instructions from the market operator.
The AEMC considers that there is currently a sufficient level of regulatory certainty associated with the manner in which the Rules are enforced and the current standard for compliance is important for maintaining system security. While the proposed Rule may, if implemented, lead to lower compliance costs for some participants, it is likely to raise costs for other participants and across the system as a whole. For these reasons, the AEMC has made a draft determination to not make a Rule to change the standard for compliance with dispatch instructions.
Stakeholder feedback is sought on the draft rule determination, which was released today. Submissions are due by Thursday 11 February 2016.
