National Electricity Rules (Rules) require AEMO to establish the Energy Adequacy Assessment Projection (EAAP) process and publish the first EAAP report by 31 March 2010. Rules also require AEMO to comply with EAAP guidelines in preparing EAAP. The EAAP report provides vital information on the impact of drought in eastern and south eastern Australia on generation capacity in the National Electricity Market (NEM).
For more information please review the EAAP guidelines.
The EAAP provides analysis of the potential effects of energy supply limitations on the National Electricity Market (NEM) power system. The EAAP covers a 24 month timeframe and is released every three months.
Under the EAAP’s data collation process, all scheduled generators in the NEM are required to submit to AEMO information regarding the effect of energy supply limitations on their production outputs. This data provides a broad assessment of impacts on supply and reliability in the NEM.
For information about submitting Variable Generator Energy Limitation Framework (GELF) Parameters, see: Request for Scheduled Generators to Submit Variable Generator Energy Limitation Framework (GELF) Parameters.
EAAP consists of two reports, EAAP public report and private EAAP reports for each Generator who owns scheduled generating units or hydro power schemes.
The EAAP public report and the updates are attached to this web page and the EAAP private reports are delivered to scheduled generators electronically via AEMO systems.
AEMO EAAP Report Update March 2016
AEMO’s March 2016 EAAP indicates the NEM has adequate energy supplies to meet projected electricity consumption over the next two years in all regions.Energy Adequacy Assessment Projection page.
Energy Adequacy Assessment – Basslink Outage - January 2016
AEMO has published a report that provides updated information about the adequacy of electricity supply in the National Electricity Market (NEM) following updated information about the Basslink Interconnector fault which occurred on 20 December 2015, disconnecting Tasmania from the NEM.
