Stress test scenarios unchanged

  • Wholesale

The stress test notice issued in January 2021 remains current and will apply for July to September 2024. There is no change from the previous quarter.

The stress-testing regime requires certain participants in the wholesale electricity market to apply a set of standard stress tests to their market position. Disclosing participants need to report the results to their Board and to NZX (as the independent registrar appointed by the Electricity Authority). The stress test results are published on the EMI website.

This is a reminder for disclosing participants to ensure their Board considers and accepts the participant’s risk position.
