The Electricity Statement of Opportunities (ESOO) provides technical and market data that informs the decision-making processes of market participants, new investors, and jurisdictional bodies as they assess opportunities in the National Electricity Market (NEM) over a 10-year outlook period.
The 2018 ESOO provides a projected outlook to 2027–28 of supply adequacy under a number of scenarios, including:
The impact of additional renewable generation in response to Australia’s federal and state renewable energy targets, and
Potential generation outage events that may challenge reliability of supply.
The 2018 ESOO was prepared by AEMO using information available at 31 July 2018. Information made available after this date may have been included in this publication where practical.
