AEMC proposes new rules to make it easier for wind and solar to share network infrastructure, easing the path to renewable energy zones.
New draft rules could prevent wind and solar projects from reducing output, as the AEMC seeks to see renewables act more like coal and gas in the market.
The clean energy sector has urged the Energy Security Board to finally kill-off the controversial COGATI reforms once and for all.
AEMC extends the consultation window for contentious plan to allow network charges on homes connecting solar and storage to the grid.
Community battery storage could make Australia’s networks smarter and cheaper, and bring their technology into the same century as the clean energy transition.
Clean energy investors slam rule-maker’s “perverse” changes to network access, saying they will result in delays, cancelled projects and higher costs.
CEC welcomes overall direction of new market rules, but warns the Cogati transmission access proposals are the “wrong reform at the wrong time.”
AEMC proposes new technical standards for wind and solar projects, and cost sharing for grid investment, after concluding ‘system strength’ investigation.
Committed wind and solar projects will take renewables share to about 42% by 2025, and add enough new capacity to force closure of up to three coal generators.
Regulator finalises “light touch” changes to market rules that will prevent wind and solar dropping capacity with no notice when prices go negative.
