Today, more than 14 months after the publication of GenInsights21 we’re sharing Key Observation 15 of 22, relating to self-forecasting for Semi-Scheduled units.
Allan O’Neil provides an explainer about how small deviations in supply and demand are managed in the NEM, in order to help us understand the apparent swings in frequency that we noted in QLD last Friday.
A short article, to record the upgrade of the ASEFS and AWEFS forecasts for Semi-Scheduled (i.e. Wind and Large Solar) units.
A short article about the AER’s publication (on 1st July 2022) of some updated information to help Semi-Scheduled generators understand their obligations.
Marcelle explores the little-understood concept in NEM dispatch of the tie-break principle, using the new ‘Constraint Dashboard’ widget in ez2view.
On Thursday 17th March, Jonathon Dyson presented at the CEC Wind Industry Forum in Melbourne about the increasing role of auto-bidding and self-forecasting in the modern-day NEM. In this article, he shares some of the key points from that presentation.
In this article we look more closely at 1st and 2nd February 2022 – and particularly at where and when the changes in rooftop PV occurred, narrowing our assessment to south-east Queensland regions. It follows on from Part A which inspected how Queensland rooftop PV output varied at the state level.
AEMO recently imposed additional dispatch obligations on six non-scheduled wind farms in South Australia. We take a look at what this means in practice.
From 10:00 today (Friday 10th September 2021), ElectraNet’s new synchronous condensers (which have been under testing) will be deliver a boost to Semi-Scheduled units in South Australia.
Looking back at Tuesday 13th April 2021 – a day in which the ex-tropical cyclone Seroja in Western Australia caused some wobbles in rooftop solar PV output in South Australia.
Following recent articles on spot market revenue earned by solar farms in the NEM in 2020, Marcelle takes a look at their FCAS costs.
Marcelle extends last week’s comparison of solar farm energy spot market revenue in 2020 by adding in an estimate of the LGC (green certificate) revenue.
Which solar farms performed best in 2020? Marcelle compares spot revenue performance across the NEM.
This morning the AEMC has published its final rule focused on clarifying how Semi-Scheduled generators should follow dispatch targets – including in dispatch intervals where prices are negative, and some had been unexpectedly switching off.
As promised in the Intermittent Generation Forum late in 2020, the AEMO has released an important Handbook for operators of Semi-Scheduled (wind and solar) assets.
Following up to AEMO’s recent Intermittent Generator forum, Marcelle looks at the challenges for wind and solar farms in providing consistently good plant availability information to AEMO and the value of transparency of this data.
This is the fourth of a short series of video snippets extracted from the 17th September 2020 presentation by Marcelle Gannon and Jonathon Dyson for the Clean Energy Council entitled ‘Maximising Profitability in the NEM’ for Wind Farms.

On 25th November, guest author Allan O’Neil examined the ‘X5 Constraint’. Two weeks of operation have passed, so now Allan reviews some of what’s happened.
