Transparency of unserved energy calculation Alternative formats available on request to PIAC - Contact PIAC
PIAC responded to the Australian Energy Market Commission’s (AEMC) consultation on a rule change to improve the transparency of unserved energy calculation.
PIAC broadly supports the Reliability Panel’s rule change proposal, considering it will improve the transparency, consistency and useability of the unserved energy calculation.
We note there is nothing currently preventing AEMO from making some of the changes the rule seeks. Rather than rely on Rules prescription alone, AEMO should proactively ensure the calculation and use of important energy system metrics are as transparent, accessible and useable as possible for stakeholders, and communicated in a way that prevents misunderstandings of what the metric represents and what it does not.
