  1. Can you please explain how the reserves in various LOR1 notices for NSW have been calculated and how that panned out in reality. 57241, 57238, 57234, 57232, 57222, 57219, 57217 , 57216 (on 4th Feb)

    Also how did notice 57218 on reference temperatures materialize?

    Why was NSW coal generation so low? It can go up to 9,500 MW but did only 8,500 MW on 6/2/2017 at the critical time. Was there a plant, transformer or transmission problem? Heat-related?

    Why did imports from Victoria suddenly drop between 13:00 and 18:30? A spike of almost 2,000 MW at 19:30?
