On 21 June 2018, the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) made a final rule which reinstates the long-notice RERT from 13 July 2018. This rule change increases the lead time available for AEMO to procure out-of-market reserves through RERT from 10 weeks to 9 months ahead of a projected shortfall.
The rule change determination requires AEMO to consult on proposed amendments to the Procedures for the Exercise of Reliability and Emergency Reserve Trader (the Procedures) for a minimum of 2 weeks, prior to publishing the amended procedures on 13 July.
