Directions to NEM generators – June 2022 Supplementary Report

Between 31 January 2020 and 17 February 2020, AEMO issued a series of directions across several events to Market Participants in South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales to maintain or re-establish the power system to a secure operating state. The need for directions arose due to the separation of South Australia and part of Victoria from the rest of the NEM and prevailing market and system conditions. 

Where the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) intervenes in the National Electricity Market (NEM) through the use of directions, AEMO must publish a report in accordance with National Electricity Rules (NER) clauses 4.8.9(f) and 3.13.6A.

The NEM Event report below satisfies those NER obligations and is based on information available to AEMO at the time of publication:

In accordance with NER Clause 3.15.7B (c)(1), AEMO is required to appoint an Independent Expert to assess and determine the additional compensation claims for the Directed participant that exceeds the $20,000 threshold and exceeds the $100,000 aggregate threshold. 

Further information on the appointment and reports completed by the Independent Expert(s) relating to the reporting period of 31 January 2020 to 17 February 2020 is accessible from the following page(s):
