AEMO produces forecasts for the day-to-day operations of the National Electricity Market (NEM) covering dispatch (five-minute) forecasts for the eight days ahead. These include forecasts for intermittent renewable generation for wind and solar, as well as electricity load forecasts.
Operational forecasts are critical inputs into the pre-dispatch and short-term projected assessment of system adequacy (STPASA), which are essential for maintaining power system security.
