Extended Reserve Technical Working Group Meetings and Papers

The extended reserves technical working group (ERTWG) was established to investigate and trial the proposed changes to the AUFLS system, as outlined in the Electricity Authority’s “Efficient procurement of Extended Reserve – draft Code amendment” consultation paper.

The (ERTWG) reviewed and discussed the changes proposed from a physical implementation perspective in order to ensure a mutual understanding of what the changes entail and how they may affect customers. 

The group was established by the System Operator and the Electricity Authority in April 2014 and it comprises representatives from six load customers, the System Operator, the grid owner and the Electricity Authority.
