Directions to QLD Generators – 3 February 2023

On 3 February 2023, AEMO issued three directions relating to the same event to Queensland Market Participants to maintain the power system in a reliable operating state. 

The need for the directions was to permit the application of the temporary release limits for the relevant power stations, minimising any reductions in their generation capacity. This was necessary to maintain a reliable operating state in Queensland during actual and forecast lack of reserve (LOR) 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:
