The AEMC has published a discussion paper on the connections elements of the COAG Energy Council’s rule change request, which seeks to amend those aspects of the National Electricity Rules that relate to transmission connection and planning.

The discussion paper sets out the Commission’s proposed changes to the transmission connections framework.

The AEMC, with Commissioners in attendance, will be hosting a public forum on the discussion paper in Sydney on 16 June 2016. The purpose of the public forum is to provide an overview of the Discussion Paper and provide an opportunity for stakeholder discussion.

A draft agenda is now available. Registration for the forum is available here and is open until 11 June 2016.

If you have any questions, please contact Claire Richards at or on (02) 8296 7878.
