Emergency Backstop Mechanism

Following industry consultation, the Emergency Backstop Mechanism applies from 6 February 2023. It requires selected Inverter Energy Systems (IES) in Queensland, such as rooftop solar PV systems, to have a Generation Signalling Device (GSD) installed. This device will allow us to respond to minimum demand events on our network at the direction of the AEMO.

For technical requirements and general guidance on installing the GSD, please refer to section 8.10.2 Emergency Backstop Mechanism of the Queensland Electricity Connection Manual (PDF 19.8 mb).
