The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) is consulting on the development of Demand Side Participation (DSP) Information Guidelines.

In March 2015, the Australian Energy Market Commission made a final rule determination that enables AEMO to request information on demand side participation from registered participants in the National Electricity Market.

As part of this rule, AEMO is required to develop, maintain and publish a set of guidelines for providing DSP information in consultation with registered participants and other interested stakeholders. The information collected by AEMO will be taken into account when developing its electricity load forecasts.

Last week, AGL made this submission to AEMO's Issues Paper on the development of the DSP Information Guidelines.
