AGL welcomes AEMO's revised specifications to support DER participation in FCAS markets

The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) published a Second Draft Determination on its Amendment of the Market Ancillary Service (MASS) Specification – DER and General Consultation. The Second Draft Determination follows AEMO’s further consideration and analysis (undertaken through the University of Melbourne). 

AGL considers that AEMO’s Second Draft Determination generally strikes the right balance between AEMO’s system security needs and the strategic intent to facilitate DER participation.

AGL looks forward to continuing to engage with AEMO, through the provision of technical expertise to AEMO’s Consultative Forum, to support DER participation in FCAS markets into the future.

We elaborate our feedback and recommendations in our formal submission, a copy of which is available here.
