Congestion Information Resource

The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) is required under the National Electricity Rules (Rules) to establish a congestion information resource (CIR), which will consolidate and enhance existing sources of information relevant to the understanding and management of transmission network congestion risk.

To meet its (Rules) obligations AEMO has:

  • Established the interim congestion information resource in October 2009
  • Published the guide to the first CIR on 1st September 2010 (this guide describes the CIR that is due in September 2011)

The guide to the Congestion Information Resource describes the web based resource that is targeted to take effect on 1 September 2012 as the CIR is progressively developed in consultation with national electricity market (NEM) registered participants and interested parties.
