Regional Rooftop Solar Generation Data Now Available in NEM-Review

June 22nd, 2016

The AEMO’S rooftop solar generation forecasting system, the Australian Solar Energy Forecasting System 2 (ASEFS2), commenced publishing data in the 2016 mid-year MMS data release. The system provides forecast and estimated actual output of rooftop solar PV cells per region.

The estimated actual rooftop solar generation, from the 27th May 2016, is now available in NEM-Review. The regional data has been included under the Generators tab as new a station per region:

  • NSW Rooftop PV
  • QLD Rooftop PV
  • SA Rooftop PV
  • TAS Rooftop PV
  • VIC Rooftop PV

For users with a copy of NEM-Review the new solar data is automatically available.

To understand more about the contribution of small-scale solar in the NEM, Paul McArdle has posted a new article on WattClarity: The opacity of distributed, small-scale solar PV output.

Four Ways in which we’ve Improved the Data in v6

July 12th, 2010

NEM-Review has been used by clients in the NEM since as early as 2001.

Over the 10 years since NEM-Review was first introduced, the NEM has developed significantly – and the needs of our clients with respect to the NEM has developed significantly as well.  Hence, with v6, we have invested many person-weeks of time in a “Data Cleansing” process designed to ensure that NEM-Review 6 is keeping pace with the times.

This Data Cleansing process has been designed to deliver added value in four ways:

  1. We have updated a number of factors associated at a Station or Unit level
  2. We have filled a small number of gaps in the data that had inadvertently slipped through the update process
  3. We have, in a small number of cases, corrected data
  4. We have implemented a framework for testing coded calculations.
