The Energy Security Board (ESB) has been requested by the COAG Energy Council to advise on a long-term market framework to support the reliability and modification of the National Electricity Market (NEM).
Necessary modifications would include adjustments to meet the needs of future diverse sources of non-dispatchable generation and flexible resources, including demand side response, storage and distributed energy resource participation.
The ESB is seeking feedback on:
- The possible future scenarios that will be used when assessing options for change
- The assessment framework for evaluating market design options
- The opportunities, challenges and risks that need to be considered as the project looks to identify market design options
- The implications for market design resulting from these opportunities, challenges and risks
Feedback received will inform the development of the next phase of the post-2025 market design project.
Submission close 30 September 2019.
