Reserve Capacity Cycle timetable

The Reserve Capacity Cycle timetable shows the key dates in Year 1 of the relevant Reserve Capacity Cycle. This timetable is intended to help Market Participants keep track of important dates under the Reserve Capacity Mechanism (RCM).

2021 and 2022 Reserve Capacity timetables

In December 2020, the Minister for Energy amended the Wholesale Electricity Market Rules (WEM Rules) to defer key events for the 2021 and 2022 Reserve Capacity Cycles. These deferrals were made to provide sufficient time for AEMO and Market Participants to implement changes to the RCM, as published in the Wholesale Electricity Market Amendment (Tranches 2 and 3 Amendments) Rules 2020 (Amending Rules).

AEMO published the 2021 and 2022 Reserve Capacity Cycle timetables on 26 February 2021, in accordance with clauses 1.36A.2 and 1.36B.2 of the Amending Rules.

Clause 1.36B.3 of the Amending Rules allows AEMO to further modify or extend the 2022 Reserve Capacity timetable. On 24 January 2022, AEMO published a consultation paper to seek stakeholder feedback on the deferral of key Year 1 events of the current 2022 Reserve Capacity Cycle timetable. Following stakeholder feedback, AEMO has extended the dates as proposed in the consultation paper.

The document below contains the 2022 Reserve Capacity Cycle timetable.
