NEM Distributed Energy Resources (DER) Register Information Guidelines Consultation
In this section
In this section
AEMO is conducting a Consultation on developing Distributed Energy Resources (DER) Information Guidelines.
On 13 September 2018, the AEMC made a final rule determination on National Electricity Rule (NER) Clause 3.7E that places an obligation on the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) to establish a static register of DER in the National Electricity Market (NEM).
This Register will give network businesses and AEMO visibility of where DER are connected to help in planning and operating the power system as it transforms. The improved information on the static characteristics of DER represents an important first step towards increasing system visibility over DER.
As part of this rule, AEMO is required to develop, maintain and publish DER Register Information Guidelines, that specify, amongst other things, the details of the information that NSPs must provide to AEMO, as well as when and how the information is to be provided. These Guidelines are to be developed following the formal Rules consultation procedure (as per NER clause 8.9) and to be published by 1 June 2019.
The objective of this Consultation is to enable Consulted Persons to be involved during the development of the Guideline, and to be properly informed of the rationale for inclusion of proposed information requirements.
