On Thursday 26th August 2021 (a little over 4 weeks after it was provided to the Energy Ministers by the Energy Security Board), the ESB’s Final Advice to Energy Ministers has been publicly released.

A quick note to alert our readers that the ESB has published an Options Paper today on the post 2025 Market Design (with submissions due Wed 9th June 2021).
This morning (Mon 7th Sept 2020) the ESB released its Discussion Paper into the design of NEM 2.0 – with 7 different work streams suggested (and submissions due 19th October 2020).
Prompted by the recent AER Issues Paper (submissions on that due today – Friday 24th July) but also aware that I’ve not yet published some broader thoughts in response to the ESB’s requests for input into their Discussion Paper on the Two Sided Market concept, I’ve posted some further thoughts. These have been informed by a longitudinal analysis of Aggregate ‘Raw Off-target’ values across all Semi-Scheduled plant.
