AGL’s submission to AEMO’s Renewable Integration Study (RIS)

With this report, AEMO aims to provide foundational engineering perspectives for the ISP, Energy Security Board (ESB), industry, market institutions, and policy-makers.

AEMO’s hope is that the RIS’s technical perspectives will ideally inform future investments, regulations, and market designs to securely operate the NEM power system with very high instantaneous penetrations of renewables.

AGL welcomes the opportunity to comment on this RIS, which provides a useful insight into some of the potential implications associated with the energy market transition, including maintaining power system security in a high renewables penetration scenario. AGL acknowledges the challenges identified by AEMO, specifically the dispatchability and predictability of a power system with increasing levels of variability and uncertainty.
