AEMC: Pricing during market suspension (Submissions by 12 September 2017)
The AEMC has released a consultation paper on an urgent rule change request from the Australian Energy Market Operator to simplify the process for setting prices if the spot market is suspended. This rule change will proceed under the expedited rule making process so it can be in place in time for next summer.
Subject to any objections to the expedited process, there will be only one round of consultation. Stakeholder submissions on the consultation paper are due by 12 September 2017.
Publication of the final rule determination is due by 10 October 2017.
