Improving Access to the Western Power Network

The Energy Transformation Implementation Unit has published a design proposal outlining proposed reforms to the Reserve Capacity Mechanism that aim to ensure it continues to meet its reliability objective as the SWIS transitions to a constrained access network model.

The Energy Transformation Taskforce has endorsed the establishment of 'Capacity Credit Rights' as a means of achieving this aim.

This design proposal commences the first stage of consultation with stakeholders to develop the design of the Capacity Credit Rights regime. The aim of this stage is to establish a high-level design of the regime for endorsement by the Energy Transformation Taskforce in December 2019.

Consultation on the high-level design will occur throughout October and November 2019, through Transformation Design and Operations Working Group meetings and through individual meetings with stakeholders.

Once the Taskforce has endorsed the high-level design, the Energy Transformation Implementation Unit will commence consultation with stakeholders to develop the amendments to the Wholesale Electricity Market Rules to implement the Capacity Credit Rights regime. This stage of consultation will include development of the design in more detail.
