In 2023, AEMO consulted on:

  • Demand Side Participation (DSP) Forecasting Methodology in accordance with the Australian Energy Regulator’s (AER) Forecasting Best Practice Guidelines consultation procedure.
  • Demand Side Participation Information (DSPI) Guidelines in accordance with the National Electricity Rules (NER) consultation process in NER clause 8.9.

The DSP Forecasting Methodology is one of many methodology documents forming part of AEMO’s Forecasting Approach, used in reliability modelling (ESOO/MT PASA) and longer-term planning documents like the Integrated System Plan (ISP). As per AEMO’s Reliability Forecasting Guidelines, such methodologies must be consulted on at least every four years.

The DSP Forecasting Methodology relies on information collected on Demand flexibility and voluntary demand reductions from registered participants through the process governed by the DSPI guideline. As result, AEMO undertook a concurrent consultation on DSPI Guidelines, to ensure they adequately support the DSP Forecasting Methodology.
