Power System Review 2015-16

​The Utilities Commission (the Commission) has released the 2015-16 Power System Review. On an annual basis, the Commission is required by the Electricity Reform Act to prepare a Power System Review that reports on power system performance and capacity for the Darwin-Katherine, Alice Springs and Tennant Creek power systems.

For this review and in accordance with the requirements of s45 of the Electricity Reform Act, the Commission focuses on:

• Forecasts of demand and supply adequacy

• Fuel supply

• Performance of the power system

• Advice on electricity industry and market policy matters

The Commission received assistance from the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) in developing forecasts. The methodology used by EMO is consistent with that used in the National Electricity Market contained in AEMO’s Forecasting Methodology Information Paper.

The Commission has also published a summary of key findings from the Power System Review.
