On 29 June 2018 the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Energy Council (Energy Council) agreed to implement the legal and regulatory framework required to give effect to the capacity trading reform package.  The implementation of the capacity trading reforms also requires AEMO to make the Capacity Transfer and Auction Procedures as well as make amendments to the GSH Exchange Agreement.

Stakeholder feedback

AEMO invites stakeholders to provide feedback on the Capacity Transfer and Auction Procedures and GSH Exchange Agreement in writing using the stakeholder feedback template to by Friday 28 September 2018.

The consultation period has now closed. Public submissions are published below.



Consistent with the approach that is usually employed when changes of this nature are made to the legal and regulatory framework, the final versions of the NGL, Regulations, NGR and Code will only be published once they are made. Amendments to the NGL required to implement the capacity trading reform package were tabled in the South Australian Parliament on 2 August, a copy of the Bill can be found at the link below:

As the NGR amendments and Code are not available to stakeholders during the consultation period, GMRG prepared an information paper that summarises the final design of the capacity trading reforms:

GMRG also prepared and published a guidance note on AEMO’s role, the requirements for the Capacity Transfer and Auction Procedures and the Bulletin Board Procedures, registration arrangements and the recovery of AEMO’s costs.

The Capacity Transfer and Auction Procedure and the GSH Exchange Agreement amendments should be reviewed in conjunction with the GMRG’s information paper and guidance notes.
