Electricity reforms takes important step forward


The Northern Territory Government is progressing its priority electricity market reforms with the release of a policy position paper and two consultation papers.

The Northern Territory electricity supply industry is undergoing a significant transition and reform is required to facilitate an increasing number of market participants and adoption of emerging technologies.

The Priority Reform Program also supports the government’s commitment to 50% renewable energy by 2030 through better integration of new, clean, secure reliable and affordable technologies in our electricity system.

The papers released by government will:

  • inform stakeholders of the government’s policy position on priority reforms to dispatch and settlement arrangements in the Darwin-Katherine system
  • seek stakeholder feedback on the proposed design of reforms to the provision of essential system services in the Darwin-Katherine, Alice Springs and Tennant Creek systems
  • seek stakeholder feedback on the proposed design of reforms to arrangements supporting reliability of the Darwin‑Katherine system.

The policy position paper on priority dispatch and settlement reforms has been informed by consultation with a stakeholder working group established for the priority reform program.

Stakeholders are invited to participate in further stakeholder working group consultation on the essential system services and reliability consultation papers by making written submissions and attending stakeholder workshops.
