Australian Aluminium Council Response: Amending the administered price cap

August 31, 2022

The Council welcomes the opportunity to provide feedback to the AMEC on its consultation paper Amending the Administered Price Cap (APC), August 2022 (the Paper). The Paper responds to Alinta’s rule change request to increase the APC from $300/MWh to $600/MWh in every NEM region for 12 months to address the significant increase in the short-run marginal cost (SRMC) of most generators as a result of high global commodity prices.
