Register as an Integrated Resource Provider, Small Resource Aggregator (SRA) in the NEM

This page outlines the requirements for registering as a Small Resource Aggregator (SRA) in the National Electricity Market (NEM).

An SRA can supply and consume electricity aggregated from one or more small production units, which are connected to a distribution or transmission network. A small production unit is owned, controlled and/or operated by a person who AEMO has exempted from the requirement to register as a Generator or an Integrated Resource Provider. A Small Resource Aggregator is a market participant.

An SRA can deliver market ancillary services in accordance with the National Electricity Rules and AEMO’s market ancillary services specifications, by applying for approval to classify plant at a small resource connection point as an ancillary service unit (ASU).

This page also provides information for participants, who are already registered as an SRA, classifying plant at small resource connections points as ASU.

Note: A person registered as an SRA can apply for approval to classify plant at a small resource connection point as an ASU. Once your first application to classify ASU has been approved, to amend or classify new ASU, you will be required to manage your applications through the Portfolio Management System.
