A short note, following AEMO reporting estimated costs for RERT (Reserve Trader) on Tuesday 25th May 2021 in QLD.
The publication by AGL Energy of the short note about the transformer incident (and injured worker) at Liddell unit 3 yesterday prompted me to have a quick look, following on from the volatility this week.
Third day in a row we see volatility in NSW (and QLD) … and this afternoon AEMO contracts, and then dispatches, Reserve Trader in NSW
This morning the AEMO have called for expressions of interest for the ‘Unscheduled Short-Notice RERT’ for summer 2020-21.
Guest author, Allan O’Neil tries to piece together further detail of what is intended with the apparent tightening of the Reliability Standard (which has sat at 0.002% USE for many years).
Today I managed to get about half-way (only!) through some analysis I wanted to do to ‘scratch that itch’ about what happened in the NSW Region on Thursday 23rd January – with LOR2 conditions necessitating RERT (Reserve Trader) in the NSW Region.
Not looking crash hot for the NSW region this afternoon…
All I have time to do today, looking into more detail of what happened today …. but note that the challenge is still unfolding.
