Matters under consultation

The focus of this consultation is to reflect the terminology in AEMO’s settlement operations documents to be made with effect from 2 June 2024 to reflect the National Electricity Amendment (Integrating energy storage systems into the NEM) Rule 2021 No.13 and National Electricity Amendment (Implementing integrated energy storage systems) Rule 2023 No.2.

In summary the changes to include new NER terminology, update of existing material and/or provide additional clarity.

AEMO considers these changes to be minor or administrative in nature. The changes make the Documents consistent with and aligned to the NER, as amended by the IESS Rules. The changes which AEMO makes to an existing procedure, guideline or other document – including by inserting new NER clauses, updating existing material and providing additional clarity - will generally be considered to be minor or administrative, if those changes:

1. do not change the substantive rights or obligations of participants
2. do not require participants to incur any costs or change their systems
3. are not expected to involve material cost for AEMO
4. are straightforward and not contentious in nature.

AEMO considers it important to request feedback on the Changes, in the interests of transparency.
