Market Advisory Committee (MAC)
In mid December 2006, the IMO established the Market Advisory Committee (MAC).
The MAC played an extremely important role in the formative years of the WEM and continues to fulfil a vital role for the industry.
The purpose of the MAC is to advise the IMO in regard to rule changes, procedure changes and general electricity market and South West interconnected system (SWIS) operation matters. The Wholesale Electricity Market Rules (the Market Rules) outline the functions and composition of the MAC, together with the procedures for appointing new members.
