Generator Registration and Connection in the NEM – A Roadshow
March 28, 2018 - 2:54 PM
AEMO will be presenting a Generator Registration and Connection to the NEM Roadshow in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane in April – May 2018. This Roadshow is to assist proponents with information on the what, why, who, how, when and timelines associated with the registration and connection process. This Roadshow is designed for Generators or anyone who wants to connect to the National Electricity Market (NEM).
You are Invited to: Generator Registration and Connection in the NEM – A Roadshow
The NEM is in a period of transition. AEMO is seeing an increased number of generators, representing a wide range of technologies and configurations, being brought to market under tight project timelines. These timelines need to take account of AEMO’s processes designed to ensure generators are registered and connected in accordance with the organisational capability and technical performance demanded by the market.
AEMO understands that for new proponents, and their service providers, the registration and connection processes can represent a challenge. There are many aspects from initial connection enquiry through registration to successful commissioning and dispatch which have to be navigated.
To help proponents understand the aspects of connection and registration AEMO is putting on a roadshow to cover the ‘what’, ‘why’, ‘who’, ‘how’, ‘when’ and ‘how long’. The aspects covered include:
Generator Performance Standards Due Diligence Processes
Telemetry and Operational Forecasting Needs
Settlements and Prudential Assessments
IT Set Up and the Commissioning Process
Network service providers have been invited to contribute to the discussion and cover key aspects of their connection responsibilities.
The Connections Roadshow will provide a whistle stop tour of the various facets of the registration and connection process. It will not be an in depth assessment or review of the National Electricity Rules or the application forms or guides that AEMO publish. AEMO will be relying on recent experience to highlight the various pitfalls that proponents need to safeguard against to ensure a smooth and timely entry into the NEM.
Interested? AEMO is running roadshows in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide from mid-April to early May. Numbers are limited to venue capacity so please get in early.
Please note, if the roadshows are well attended and receive positive feedback they will be repeated later in the year.
Please contact Stakeholder Relations at StakeholderRelations@aemo.com.au If you have any queries.
