We're seeking submissions on Part 8 of the Code’s common quality requirements. Currently, the common quality requirements of Part 8 may disadvantage some evolving technologies over others, particularly inverter-based resources. As a result, this may undermine the ability to promote competition in, reliable supply by, and the efficient operation of the electricity industry.
We have published an issues paper and welcome feedback from interested parties on:
- the description of each identified issue in our issues paper and whether you consider it is a high priority to address
- any other high priority common quality issues not identified in the issues paper that are occurring or that you expect to occur because of:
- the uptake of inverter-based resources, and
- how the Code enables different technologies.
We are aware that a review of common quality has, or is likely to have, linkages with other parts of the Code. We will carefully consider these linkages as part of this review.
We are seeking feedback on the questions outlined in Appendix B of our issues paper from 4 April to 30 May 2023. We are available to meet with interested parties, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange.
We will use feedback from submissions and ongoing engagement to progress the challenges and opportunities affecting security and resilience of the power system in its low-emissions transition.
