    Technology De-rating Method Industry Consultations

    De-rating’ factor is applied to all forms of electricity generation as we do not assume that 100% of capacity will be available 100% of the time. Generating Plant can break down from time to time and wind and solar output varies day to day. Applying a ‘de-rating factor’ helps us to determine how much electricity generation is required to meet the Government’s Reliability Standard. This section contains information related to de-rating factor reviews and projects undertaken.
