As part of the second stage of this review a consultation paper on stage 2 options has been published with supporting appendices.

Consultation: Stage 2 Options

In response to queries about flow tracing from participants during the consultation period, the Commission published a draft report, "Transpower Asset Usage 2004 - 2008". It includes:

  • a brief overview of the flow-tracing approach (which is quite different to the marginal power flow allocation used as the basis for the Transmission Pricing Methodology some years ago); and
  • illustrations of the electrical energy usage of assets on Transpower's network, divided among the constituent customers.
