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.
AEMO has newly developed the Forecasting Accuracy Report Methodology and is seeking feedback on the following questions:
- Are the demand adjustments outlined in this report reasonable for estimating demand without load shedding and DSP?
- Is the FAR methodology outlined in this report reasonable, and does it focus on the areas that will deliver the greatest insights for forecast accuracy?
- If not, what alternative or additional metrics, visualisations or processes should be considered in the methodology?
- Is there anything else AEMO should consider when evaluating its choice of accuracy metrics?
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.
Closing Date and Time
Submissions in response to this Notice of Consultation should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, to reach AEMO by 5.00pm (Melbourne time) on 3 June 2020.

Submissions received after the closing date and time will not be valid, and AEMO is not obliged to consider them. Any late submissions should explain the reason for lateness and the detriment to you if AEMO does not consider your submission.
