NEM Retail market system changes for WDR

The heat maps show the Retail market systems affected by the introduction of WDR.

Baseline - NEW

The new WDR baseline system will perform “predictability of load” calculations (for WDR eligibility) and baseline calculations (for settlement) for DRSPs’ NMIs. It will also generate baseline calculation reports for settlement statement reconciliation. The baseline system does not have a market interface, however DRSPs will be able to see the calculation results via the Portfolio management system.

Separately, AEMO is developing a web-based tool for participants to estimate their potential “predictability of load” assessment results. It is intending to release this tool to participants well ahead of WDR industry testing.

WDR updates to AEMO’s Retail Systems

WDR changes to AEMO's retail systems are modest and mainly relate to adding the DRSP participant type and related attributes (see table). There are no asexml schema changes required to implement WDR.

Summary

NMI creation

NMI and relevant standing data will be created by LNSPs. A NMI must exist before it can be classified as a WDRU

No change

NMI Discovery/ Standing Data

NMI Discovery will be performed just like it is today with a DRSP role returning in the discovery if a DRSP has been assigned. DRSPs will have access to standing data.

AEMO to create new DRSP role

DRSP role will be discoverable in Type 2 NMI Discovery

DRSP will be entitled to access standing data as per CATS Procedures

NMI Role assignment

DRSP role assignment will be performed by AEMO using the CR5101

AEMO to assign DRSP role to relevant WDRU NMIs

Metering changes

Metering changes will happen as per today's processes. DRSPs will be notified upon completion if they have a relationship with the NMI

No change

Role changes

Role changes will happen as per today's processes. DRSPs will be notified upon completion if they have a relationship with the NMI

No change

NMI re/de-energisation 

Re-en/de-en processes will happen as per today's processes. DRSPs will be notified of NMI status changes via completion of change requests if they have a relationship with the NMI.

No change

NMI extinction

Extinction processes will happen as per today's processes. DRSPs will be notified of NMI status changes via completion of change requests if they have a relationship with the NMI.

No change

Removal of DRSP role in MSATS

DRSP removal will be processed by AEMO by assigning a participant id that reflects that no DRSP is assigned to the NMI.

AEMO to create a participant ID to replace the DRSP participant ID showing that a DRSP no longer exists and the NMI is no longer a classified WDRU.
