Decisions published: Review of official conservation campaigns and new SOSFIP

We have completed our review of the arrangements for official conservation campaigns (OCCs). We have also approved Transpower’s (in its role as the system operator) proposal to replace the Security of Supply Forecasting and Information Policy (SOSFIP).

Changes to Part 9 of the Code and the replacement SOSFIP will be gazetted this week, and go live from 1 August 2019. This follows a consultation period which ran December 2018 – February 2019. Our key decisions are to count contingent hydro storage in relation to OCCs and retain the 10% and 8% trigger points (respectively) for starting and stopping OCCs.

We are organising a briefing in Wellington on the morning of Thursday 4 July to explain these changes – further information to follow.  

See the following documents for further information.
