Self-service password management
The following document provides a guide to AEMO’s self-service password management system for participants.
This guide provides details about using AEMO’S e-Hub as an interface to communicate information with AEMO. It assists wholesale electricity and gas participants in developing their own APIs.
Data Interchange (DI)
Data Interchange is a set of cooperating applications to replicate data between AEMO’s Wholesale Market Systems and a participant’s RDBMS conforming to the Electricity and/or Gas Data Models.
Below are all the components necessary for a new installation of Data Interchange, bundled together into compressed files. Each bundle is for a specific RDBMS and the latest release of the Electricity and Gas Data Models.
Registered participants can also find Data Interchange software and guides on the Participant File Share, and on the Data Subscription section of the EMMS Markets Portal.
