The AEMC today published presentation slides and a summary of the stakeholder workshop on the non-scheduled generation and load in central dispatch rule change proposals held on 24 March 2017.

Under the proposed rule changes, a number of options for changing the requirements for non-scheduled generators and loads to participate in central dispatch were put forward.

At the workshop, participants provided feedback on the AEMC’s analysis of the issues raised in the rule change proposals and the options being considered.

To enable further consultation, and due to the complexity of issues raised by the rule change requests, the AEMC is extending the date for publishing the draft determination until 20 June 2017, under section 107 of the National Electricity Law.
