The NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet has released a report it commissioned from HoustonKemp. The report provides a summary of the reliability standards applying to the NSW electricity transmission and distribution businesses, and describes the current framework under which these standards are set.
The report was commissioned in the context of the proposed partial lease of the NSW electricity network businesses. It highlights that the framework for setting reliability standards for these network businesses, and the reliability standards themselves, are independent of ownership and therefore will not change as a consequence of the proposed partial lease of the businesses.
The report is available here.
