The AEMC has published an audio presentation providing further detail and information on dynamic regional pricing. Dynamic regional pricing is one possible reform to how generators access and use transmission infrastructure in the national electricity market. 

Dynamic regional pricing is being considered as part of the AEMC’s review on coordination of generation and transmission investment – access and charging. It is a different way to settle the market when transmission congestion arises. 

The presentation gives a high level overview of what dynamic regional pricing is, and how it addresses congestion problems in the existing market. The AEMC proposed a high level model of dynamic regional pricing in our March 2019 stakeholder consultation paper, and provided additional information in a supplementary paper, released in early April. 

Submissions on the consultation paper are due by 26 April 2019.
