The Operations Planning Working Group (OPWG) is a technical working group established to consider operations planning issues that are under the control or influence of AEMO and/or Transmission Network Service Providers (TNSPs). The working group reports to the National Electricity Market Operations Committee (NEMOC) and is designed to help improve power system security and NEM efficiency.
The OPWG primarily focuses on matters that are outside the near real time ‘operations’ horizon. The OPWG is intended to act as a bridge between traditional planning and operations activities.
The OPWG's role is to identify and prioritise issues, develop action plans to resolve them, and monitor the implementation and impact of those plans. The group can also call upon additional resources to ensure proposed actions are implemented successfully.
AEMO chairs the OPWG and provides secretariat support.
