Expressions of Interest and Tender to provide Network Support and Control Ancillary Services 2024

AEMO has published a notice under clause 3.11.3(c)(3) of the National Electricity Rules (Rules), confirming that a Network Support and Control Ancillary Services (NSCAS) gap remains in South Australia. For the reasons described in that notice, AEMO considers, for the purposes of clause 3.11.3(c)(1) of the Rules, that there will be a remaining NSCAS gap in South Australia from now until mid-2026.  AEMO is therefore required to use reasonable endeavours to acquire sufficient NSCAS to meet this gap in accordance with clause 3.11.5 of the Rules and the NSCAS Tender Guidelines here.

Under clause 3.11.5(a) of the Rules and the NSCAS Tender Guidelines, AEMO must first call for Expressions of Interest from potential providers, before issuing an NSCAS Invitation to Tender.
