AER publishes its draft transmission annual planning report guidelines

The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) is requesting submissions on its draft Transmission Annual Planning Report (TAPR) guidelines.

The TAPR guidelines will support transmission businesses to consistently provide information across the National Electricity Market. This information will complement the TAPR documents published on 30 June each year. The TAPR guidelines follows from the transmission connection and planning arrangements rule determination.

The draft TAPR guidelines and explanatory statement propose what information transmission businesses should publish to assist interested parties to engage effectively in network planning decisions. We are interested in whether the information we are proposing is clear, sufficiently comprehensive and fit-for purpose.

Invitation for submissions

We invite submissions on the draft TAPR guidelines by the close of business, 15 October 2018. We prefer stakeholders send submissions electronically to: Alternatively, stakeholders can mail submissions to:

Mr Sebastian Roberts
General Manager, Transmission and Gas
