Getting Started

About the API

The Self forecasting API is used by participants who wish to submit their Solar or Wind Forecasts for a DUID to AEMO.

Market participants can optionally provide dispatch self-forecasts of the unconstrained intermittent generation from their semi-scheduled generating units for use in dispatch. These forecasts are only subject to technical factors, and do not reflect market intentions. Market participants must register with AEMO to submit dispatch self-forecasts.

Getting Access

All requests to register to submit SFs for one or more semi-scheduled generating units belonging to a Participant ID must be made to AEMO using this application form, and sent from the relevant trading manager for that Participant ID via email to:
Subsequent changes to the registration details (including changes to self-forecast providers, forecasting models, participant contact details) must be made by re-submitting the application to AEMO showing the relevant changes.
AEMO will approve the application by return email once all the required information is provided, and advise the unique Model for each unit and forecasting model combination to be included in all self-forecast submissions.

During formal onboarding, you will first be given access to Pre-Production and must complete your development/testing there prior to getting access to Production.
