AEMO has completed its consultation on the Amendment to the Energy Conversion Model Guidelines (‘the ECM guidelines’) under clause 8.9 of the Rules and published a final report and determination.


The ECM Guidelines outline the data required to develop forecasting modules for wind generators in the Australian Wind Energy Forecasting System, the real time data requirements to produce wind generation forecasts, ECM submission timelines and guidelines for wind turbine aggregation to turbine clusters. Investigation of the causes of a scheduling error in NEM highlighted the requirement to amend the ECM Guidelines.

On 21 March 2013 AEMO published the draft determination of a Rules consultation to amend and publish the ECM Guidelines in accordance with clause 2.2.7(d) of the Rules, in order to address the issues described in the issues paper. These Guidelines are only applicable for semi-scheduled generators.

No material issues were raised by the Consulted Persons.

Final Determination

AEMO determines the ECM guidelines in the format of Schedule A: Proposed Amended Energy Conversion Model Guidelines, February 2013 in accordance with clause 2.2.7(d) of the Rules.
