The Australian Energy Market Commission has extended the time for making a final rule concerning proposed changes to the framework for compensating market participants which are dispatched differently when the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) intervenes to maintain security and reliability.

The extra time is necessary due to the complexity of the issues involved and allows for further consideration of issues raised by AEMO in response to the draft determination. 

The final rule will now be made by 5 August 2021. This extension of time enables the issues to be considered alongside the Integrating energy storage systems into the NEM rule change request. This is appropriate given that the issues raised by AEMO concern how the compensation framework applies to energy storage systems. 

More information on this issue will be published shortly.
