The AEMC is extending the date for publishing the draft determination on the Removal of disincentives to primary frequency response rule change request. 

This extension will allow the Commission to develop and consult on improved incentive arrangements for frequency control during normal operation as part of its frequency control work plan

The draft determination will now be published on 24 September 2020.

As an interim measure, the AEMC has made a draft rule requiring electricity generators to respond automatically to changes in power system frequency to help keep the system secure.
