Review of regulatory settings for Official Conservation Campaigns (OCCs)
11 Dec 2018 – 11 Feb 2019
We are consulting on the regulatory settings for official conservation campaigns.
This review is being co-ordinated with Transpower’s consultation on its review of the security of supply forecasting and information policy.
The consultations propose various changes, designed to improve the reliability of the system, including:
- the inclusion of contingent hydro storage in hydro risk curves
- setting the start- and stop-triggers for official conservation campaigns
- setting triggers for the release of contingent hydro storage
- using floors to avoid contingent hydro storage being inaccessible.
