Hit the publish button too soon this evening on this second article for the day, and first article looking specifically ahead to tomorrow (Tuesday 1st February 2022) with forecast LOR3 (i.e. controlled ‘load shedding’) conditions in the QLD region at the end of what looks set to be a very hot and sticky day.
At 20:47 (NEM time) the AEMO has published Market Notice 94321 announcing their intention to commence RERT (i.e. Reserve Trader) negotiations with energy users or others who might provide that little bit of extra support to enable the AEMO to avoid having to trigger (some less discriminating) load shedding:
