The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) has invited feedback and written submissions from industry stakeholders for the NEM Electricity Statement of Opportunities (ESOO) and the Integrated System Plan (ISP).
AEMO has published a Consultation Paper on the proposed scenarios, inputs,
assumptions, methodology, timeline and consultation process of these publications, and is calling for feedback to improve the quality of the input data and assumptions used in AEMO’s planning and forecasting work.
For the 2019-20 ISP and 2019 ESOO, the market operator intends to build on the scenario analysis approach used last year to identify the requirements for optimal power system development under a range of different future scenarios. It also seeks to identify requirements for managing increasing uncertainties and the key material issues that impact reliability, generation, and transmission development.
AEMO welcomes evidence based written submissions on the matters raised in this consultation paper by Wednesday 20 March 2019 via email to [email protected].
Additional suggestions on ways AEMO can improve its ISP or ESOO, other than the topics outlined in the Consultation Paper, are also welcomed.
Following receipt of written submissions, AEMO will take further steps to resolve any outstanding issues of concern and finalise the scenarios, inputs and assumptions. Further details will be provided via the AEMO website.
