Procedure Change Proposal
Wholesale Electricity Market Rules – Clause 2.10
Date of Notice: 25 May 2023
Matter under Consultation
The Coordinator of Energy (Coordinator) is undertaking a two-stage review of the supplementary capacity provisions in Section 4.24 of the WEM Rules. The need for the review was triggered by the AEMO’s call for tenders for supplementary capacity services in September 2022 and is conducted by the Coordinator under clause 4.24.19 of the Wholesale Electricity Market Rules (WEM Rules).
Stage 1 of the review is now complete, with the Wholesale Electricity Market Amendment (Supplementary Capacity) Rules 20231, gazetted on 28 April 2023. The Amending Rules have resulted in changes to the Procedure provisions of section 4.24, requiring amendments to the Procedure.
AEMO has identified that replacement of the Procedure is the preferred option to update the Procedure and improve consistency with other WEM Procedures for which AEMO is responsible and welcomes feedback on the proposed amendments in the replacement Procedure provided with the Procedure Change Proposal.
