Rule Change: Open
Adani Renewables has submitted two rule change requests relating to the transmission loss factors framework in the national electricity market (NEM).
- On 27 November 2018 Adani Renewables submitted a rule change request seeking to redistribute the allocation of the intra-regional settlement residue (IRSR) so it applies equally between generators and networks users.
- On 5 February 2019 Adani Renewables submitted a rule change request seeking to change the marginal loss factor (MLF) calculation methodology to an average loss factor methodology.
Consolidation of rule change requests
The AEMC has consolidated these two rule change requests to enable consideration of 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. The consolidated rule change request will be referred to as Transmission loss factors.
On 6 June 2019 the AEMC published a consultation paper that seeks stakeholder input on Adani Renewables’ rule change requests. The consultation paper also seeks to facilitate discussion on the operation of the framework more generally.
Submissions to the consultation paper are due by 18 July 2019.
The AEMC held a workshop on 4 July 2019 in Brisbane to gather views on the rule change requests and the operation of the transmission loss factor framework in the national electricity market more broadly. The presentation slides from the AEMC, AEMO and Adani Renewables can be found below.
The workshop was also webcast. You can listen to the recording of the webcast here.
The AEMC has two other projects that relate to Adani Renewables’ rule changes. These are:
- Coordination of generation and transmission investment implementation (COGATI) - access and charging review
- Transparency of new projects rule change
