The Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) has extended the time for making a draft determination and draft rule on how dedicated connection assets (DCAs) operate in the national electricity market.

A DCA is a privately owned and operated asset – such as a power line – that connects market participants – such as generators and large energy users – with the shared transmission network at a single connection point.

This extension of time for the Connection to dedicated connection assets rule change is necessary due to the complexity of issues raised by the rule change request and feedback from stakeholders after the AEMC’s webinar on DCAs requiring the Commission to undertake additional, detailed analysis. The draft determination and draft rule will now be published on 26 November 2020.
