The Australian Energy Market Commission today started a consultation on a rule change request from the COAG Energy Council which seeks to allow the Australian Energy Market Operator to collect information for the purpose of developing transmission connection point demand forecasts. 

These forecasts may be used by AEMO in its national transmission planning role and by the Australian Energy Regulator to assess transmission network service providers’ regulatory proposals.

A consultation paper has been prepared to facilitate public consultation and assist stakeholders in providing submissions on the rule change request.

Submissions on the rule change request are due by 4 June 2015.
