- Accepting submissions
The ESB was tasked to develop the National Electricity Rules (the Rules) necessary to implement the Obligation. The draft Rules were published for stakeholder consultation on 8 March 2019. The final Rules are proposed to be in place by 1 July 2019.
As set out in the Rules, the AER is responsible for developing a number of Guidelines on certain aspects of the RRO.
Draft Interim Reliability Instrument Guideline
As set out in draft Rule 4A.C.12, the AER must create a Reliability Instrument Guideline. The guideline explains how the AER will have regard to the criteria in the rules when assessing whether or not to make a reliability instrument following a request from AEMO, sets out the AER consultation process with stakeholders when deciding on a reliability instrument request and defines what information AEMO must provide the AER as part of a reliability instrument request and the form of this information.
On 4 April 2019 we published the Draft Interim Reliability Instrument Guideline for consultation.
A final Interim Reliability Instrument Guideline, taking in to account stakeholder submissions, will be published by 31 July 2019.
Invitation for submissions
Interested parties are invited to make a submission on the Draft Interim Reliability Instrument Guideline by close of business on 24 April 2019.
Submissions can be sent to RRO@aer.gov.au with the following title in the email: For consultation - Draft Interim Reliability Instrument Guideline. Submissions received will be published on the AER's website.
