The Australian Energy Market Commission has extended the time for making a final rule on how connection assets are regulated in the national electricity market.
A dedicated connection asset (DCA) is a privately owned and operated asset – such as a power line – that connects market participants – such as generators and large energy users – with the shared transmission network at a single connection point.
This extension of time for the Connection to dedicated connection assets rule change is necessary due to the complexity of issues raised by the rule change request and feedback received from stakeholders in submissions to the draft rule determination requesting extra consultation. The Commission will use the additional time to address outstanding issues by undertaking further analysis and additional stakeholder consultation.
The final rule and final determination will now be published on 8 July 2021.
