Guest author, Allan O’Neil, takes an initial look at some of the highlights included in the AEMO’s Electricity Statement of Opportunities for 2021 (a 10-year forecast for what might unfold in the future of the NEM).
The AEMO’s 2021 ESOO was released this morning. Here’s where you can get it, and some of the articles written about it.
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).
From Monday 1st Feb 2021 the (720-page) Generator Statistical Digest 2020 is more broadly available – here’s some of what’s in it, and how you can access. Those dozens of clients who had submitted earlier pre-orders were provided early access on Friday 29th Jan 2021.
Patricia Boyce examines a chart that was included in the AEMO’s Renewable Integration Study, which depicted actual and modelled solar and wind generation output against underlying demand. She then looks at whether intermittent generators can achieve sufficient return and discusses the problems that still need to be solved.
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).
Guest author, Allan O’Neil, takes a look at the AEMO’s 2020 ESOO to unpick the reason for the differences in outlook (and the sensationalised news headlines) compared to 2019 ESOO.

An article today providing links to the ‘Renewable Integration Study’ which the AEMO released today, and also to the headline media coverage I have seen on my quick scan this morning.
Some brief initial thoughts, following the release of two discussion papers by the COAG Energy Council – the first on two-sided markets, and the second seeming to cover two different challenges (forward markets, and ‘Keeping the Lights on Services’).
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).
We’ve been appreciating the early orders flowing in from those who did not wait until the release of the GSD2019, and we’re pleased to announce that this new Statistical Digest is available today.
Guest author, Allan O’Neil, provides us an update today on what we can see about summer 2019-20 (in the physical market, and the financial market), now that it is only just around the corner.
Without resiling from last week’s criticism of how the headlines from AEMO’s 2019 Electricity Statement of Opportunities (ESOO) were communicated, it’d be churlish for me to fault the depth of disclosure and data sitting behind those results. Literally tens if…
I’d rather not add to the number of conspiracy theories in circulation, but I wonder if there’s a conspiracy to make understanding our electricity system in general, and its reliability in particular, as difficult as humanly possible. There’s no doubt…
AEMO releases its Electricity Statement of Opportunities today, with an initial flurry of press coverage. Another reminder of heightened risk that the NEM is increasingly facing…
