Register as a Reallocator in the NEM
This page outlines the requirements for registering as a Reallocator in the National Electricity Market (NEM).
Anyone that wishes to participate in a reallocation transaction must register as a Reallocator. A Reallocator must be a “wholesale client” as defined in the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth).
A reallocation transaction is undertaken with the consent of two market participants and AEMO. AEMO credits one market participant with a positive trading amount for a trading interval, and debits a matching negative trading amount to the other market participant for the same trading interval. These may be specified dollar amounts, or calculated by reference to a specified quantity of energy and price. These amounts are typically underpinned by a contract between the credit and debit parties, but AEMO is not a party to that contract.
These are the documents needed for registration.
Fees and charges
Participants must pay a fee to register; these are outlined on the NEM Fees and charges page.
