Rule Change: Open
On 28 June 2021, the AEMC received a rule change request from AEMO to amend the National Electricity Rules.
AEMO’s proposed rule seeks to amend clause 3.7.3 of the NER to:
- introduce a principles-based approach in clause 3.7.3 of the NER, with the intention of removing unnecessary prescription and non-essential detail from the NER and placing it in AEMO procedures
- amend the ST PASA timeframe to reflect current practices
- publish generator availability information on a per unit, or dispatchable unit identifier (DUID) level
- amend the definition of PASA availability.
The proposed changes are consistent with the new ST PASA system being developed in the ST PASA replacement project.
On 26 August 2021, the AEMC published a consultation paper seeking feedback on the proposal.
The Commission requests that submissions to the consultation paper use the template provided. Submissions to the consultation paper are due on 23 September 2021.
