WDR updates to system and procedure documentation

The WDR program is updating documentation to reflect the changes required to AEMO’s market-facing systems and procedures aligned with the Wholesale Demand Response rule.  

To facilitate this activity, technical documents, procedure work packages and high-level impact assessments (HLIAs) have been developed across functional areas. ‘Work packages’ relate to the grouping of approximately 30 procedures, policies and guides that are affected by the WDR Mechanism rule. 

This documentation also supports market participants in making the required changes to their internal delivery programs in preparation for WDR commencement.  

The table shows the documentation that has been or will be updated for WDR for each functional area.
