Invitation to make submissions

AEMO invites written submissions on the matter under consultation, including any alternative or additional proposals you consider may better meet the objectives of this consultation and the National Electricity Objective in section 7 of the National Electricity Law.  

This consultation seeks feedback on the following topics:

  • Updates to the data AEMO requires from participants to perform DSP forecasting.
  • DSP’s relationship with the Distributed Energy Resources (DER) Register and Wholesale Demand Response (WDR) interface.
  • How the DSP programs should be classified to support the evolution of DSP.
  • Entry of industry participant contact information to expedite AEMO’s clarification of information entered in the portal.

The issues paper details the impact of these changes on the DSPI Guidelines.  

Please identify any parts of your submission that you wish to remain confidential, and explain why.  AEMO may still publish that information if it does not consider it to be confidential, but will consult with you before doing so. 

Please note that material identified as confidential may be given less weight in the decision-making process than material that is published.


In your submission, you may request a meeting with AEMO to discuss the matter under consultation, stating why you consider a meeting is necessary or desirable.

If appropriate, meetings may be held jointly with other Consulted Persons. Subject to confidentiality restrictions, AEMO will generally make details of matters discussed at a meeting available to other Consulted Persons, and may publish them.


All submissions will be published on AEMO’s website, other than confidential content.
