The AEMC has released a draft determination in relation to a rule change request from the Standing Council on Energy and Resources on the expenditure objectives in chapters 6 and 6A of the National Electricity Rules.

The draft rule gives primacy to jurisdictional standards for reliability, security and quality of supply in the objectives where these standards exist. This will clarify how the existing objectives work together in relation to these measures.

The AEMC welcomes submission on the draft determination and rule by 8 August 2013.
