AEMO has completed consultation conducted on Market and System Operation Procedures and Guidelines (Wholesale Demand Response) changes. AEMO has published a Final Report. The publication of this Final Report marks the conclusion of the of the stakeholder consultation. 

Under the Wholesale Demand Response Mechanism (WDRM), from October 2021, consumers will be able to sell demand response in the wholesale market. The WDRM Rule introduces a new market participant category, the Demand Response Service Provider (DRSP).

On 10 September 2020, the AEMC published the final determination in respect to the rule change to improve the intervention mechanisms in the NEM. The final rule removes the obligation on AEMO to counteract and minimise the effect on interconnector flows during an intervention to contribute to minimising costs for consumers. This final rule came into effect on 17 September 2020.

This consultation was conducted in accordance with the Rules consultation requirements detailed in clause 8.9 of the National Electricity Rules.
