AEMC: Generator technical performance standards Consultation Paper (submissions by 31 October 2017)
The AEMC has published a consultation paper on proposed changes to the technical performance standards for generators seeking to connect to the national electricity market, and the process for negotiating those standards.
The rule change relates to a recommendation made in the Finkel review for the AEMC to review and update connection standards in the National Electricity Rules. It forms part of the AEMC’s broader package of system security work which includes a range of measures to help AEMO and networks manage a transforming power system with reduced inertia and system strength.
The Commission will hold stakeholder workshops on this rule change and has said further information on these workshops will be provided as the rule change progresses.
Stakeholders are invited to provide written submissions on the consultation paper by 31 October 2017.
