We provide the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) with up to date information on planned outages on the transmission network. This helps ensure the market operator and other stakeholders are kept well informed about our operational activities.

Under the National Electricity Rules (clause 11.30.2), we provide the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) with a spreadsheet of our planned network outages.

The published planned network outage details represent our current intentions and best estimates, however there are a number of reasons that some network outages may need to be re-scheduled including:

  • A system security or reliability incident such as an anticipated failure of plant or equipment on the network.
  • Adverse weather conditions that could lead to system security or reliability problems.
  • Other environmental hazards such as bushfires, floods or earthquakes.
  • Optimising the overall availability of the network based on needs and resources.
