The AEMC invites stakeholders to a workshop on 4 July 2019 in Brisbane to gather views on the operation of the transmission loss factor framework in the national electricity market.
This input from stakeholders will help us assess two rule change requests from Adani Renewables about how marginal loss factors are calculated and how intra-regional settlement residues are distributed. In assessing the rule change requests, the AEMC will consider broader issues around how the transmission loss factor framework can continue to send the most appropriate signals to investors in the face of power system restructuring.
If you are interested in attending, or have any questions about the workshop or the rule change requests more generally, please contact Andrew Splatt at firstname.lastname@example.org or (02) 8296 0623. Final details for the workshop; including venue, time and agenda, will be provided closer to the date.
The AEMC is currently consulting on two related projects:
- We are assessing rule change requests on ways to enhance publicly available information about new generation projects to help give investors more certainty. This may help address some current stakeholder concerns with the transmission loss factor framework by providing more information about forthcoming generation projects to allow investors to better forecast potential changes to loss factors. Read a summary of submissions to the consultation paper.
- A holistic solution to access to the national grid is being progressed through the AEMC’s Coordination of generation and transmission investment (access and charging) review. This review is looking at how to deliver the right amount of new transmission infrastructure in the right place at the right time, to meet future needs. It is part of the AEMC’s broader package of changes to the regulatory framework to support new investment in transmission networks in line with AEMO’s Integrated System Plan. A directions paper on the COGATI access reforms is due to be published later this month for stakeholder input. For more information view the COGATI project timeline.
