One of the functions of the system operator, specified in the Code, is to prepare and publish a Security of Supply Forecasting and Information Policy (SOSFIP).

In consultation with the industry and as part of the current regulatory regime we have revised the Security of Supply Forecasting and Information Policy, this has now been gazetted by the Electricity Authority and is effective from 15 December 2020. A link to the approved version of this policy is in the Approved Policy section below.

Approved Policy

The Security of Supply Forecasting and Information Policy sets out our functions in relation to the provision of information and short to medium term forecasting.

Approved SOSFIP 2020

2022 Consultation

The Authority commissioned MartinJenkins to undertake an operational review of the 2021 dry year. This review included the dry year risk regime which includes the Security of Supply Forecasting and Information Policy (SOSFIP) and Emergency Management Policy (EMP). While the review found that the security of supply framework worked as intended and the dry year situation was managed, it highlighted areas of improvement for the SOSFIP and EMP.

After receiving the findings of the MartinJenkins report the Authority and Transpower initiated a review of these policies which are now available for initial consultation. This consultation proposes updates to the SOSFIP and EMP.  Below is a link to the consultation paper, we aim to publish the non-confidential submissions on this page towards the end of May 2022.
