The ESB was tasked to develop the National Electricity Rules (the Rules) necessary to implement the Obligation. The final Rules came in to effect on 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.
Interim Reliability Instrument Guidelines
As set out in 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 31 July 2019 we published the Interim Reliability Instrument Guidelines and final determination document.
