Expressions of Interest and Indicative Facility Class assessment

AEMO invites both existing and new Market Participants to provide information regarding new Energy Producing System and/or Demand Side Management (DSM) capacity they intend to make available as Reserve Capacity in the South West Interconnected System (SWIS).

2024 Expressions of Interest

The 2024 Request for Expressions of Interest (REOI) invites Market Participants and proponents to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) for Certified Reserve Capacity in the 2026-27 Capacity Year.

Proponents are not required to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to be eligible to apply for Certified Reserve Capacity (CRC). 

For proponents that submit an EOI, AEMO will assess the EOI and assign an indicative Facility Class (IFC) for CRC application purposes prior to the opening of the CRC window. 

The submission of a valid EOI and the submission time will affect the Facility’s priority order when assigning the Network Access Quantity (NAQ) in instances where there is a tie-break in the NAQ calculation process.

Proponents that do not submit an EOI must apply for an IFC assessment prior to applying for CRC. IFC assessment submissions require the same information submitted in an EOI. IFC are submitted using the same application form as the EOI application form. All questions in the EOI/IFC assessment must be responded to and supporting evidence should be submitted where appropriate.

Failure to adequately respond to the EOI may result in the EOI being deemed invalid under clause 4.2.6 of the Wholesale Electricity Market Rules (WEM Rules).

EOIs must be submitted to AEMO by 5:00pm (Australian Western Standard Time), Friday 1 March 2024.
