The publication of the 2020 Forecast Accuracy Report (FAR) marks the commencement of AEMO’s Forecast Improvement Plan consultation. 

The Forecast Accuracy Report is for the purposes of clause 3.13.3A(h) of the National Electricity Rules and has been prepared consistent with AEMO's Interim Reliability Forecast Guidelines and Forecast Accuracy Reporting Methodology for forecast improvements and accuracy. It reports on the accuracy of demand and supply forecasts in the 2019 Electricity Statement of Opportunities (ESOO) for each region in the National Electricity Market (NEM). Based on these observations, AEMO proposes a number of forecast improvements.
