Rule Change: Pending
The AEMC and AEMO have developed a joint paper to update stakeholders on the progress of the ESB’s essential system services (ESS) reform initiatives, including those related to inertia. This paper outlines the significant ESS work program underway and seeks your feedback on the various interactions with the Australian Energy Council’s (AEC’s) rule change request to introduce an inertia spot market.
Feedback on this paper will inform the AEMC’s consideration of when it is practicable to initiate the rule change request, which includes considering a number of factors such as complexity and interactions with other reforms. The rule change request remains pending.
We are seeking written submissions on the questions posed in this paper by Thursday 21 July 2022.
We will also be holding a public forum on Thursday 30 June 2022 between 12:30 pm and 2:30 pm (AEST). The forum will provide an opportunity for stakeholders to engage on the joint paper and the AEC’s rule change request further. The forum registration page is available here. Registrations are due by 5:00 pm Friday 24 June 2022.
Rule change process
On 15 December 2021 the AEMC received a rule change request from the Australian Energy Council to amend the National Electricity Rules.
The AEMC has not yet initiated this rule change request. When the AEMC initiates this process, the AEMC will publish a Consultation Paper to facilitate stakeholder consultation on the request.
A copy of the rule change request is available below.
