This consultation will review numerous reliability forecasting guidelines and methodologies. In undertaking this consultation AEMO applies both the standard rules consultation procedure as described in clause 8.9.2 of the National Electricity Rules (NER) and the Forecasting Best Practice consultation procedures as described in the Appendix A of the AER’s Forecasting Best Practice Guidelines.

This consultation aims to meet AEMO’s requirements under:

  • the Enhancing information on generator availability in MTPASA rule change
  • AEMO’s commitment to review processes used for projecting supply adequacy over the medium term, as specified in the market event and reviewable operating incident report for the NEM market suspension and operational challenges in June 2022.
  • the AER’s Forecasting Best Practise Guidelines (to review at least once every four years)
  • AEMO’s Reliability Forecast Guidelines (to review at least once every four years)
  • NER 3.9.3D(e) (to review the Reliability Standard Implementation Guidelines at least once every four years)

AEMO will also implement minor and administrative changes related to the Integrating Energy Storage Systems in the NEM rule change.
