Pool generation volume
Generation sold to the pool increased by 0.2% since FY19. This was driven by higher generation from AGL Macquarie due to improved reliability and increased volume of coal deliveries, increased generation from Silverton and Coopers Gap wind farms, and the inclusion of Perth Energy volumes. This was partly offset by decreased generation at AGL Loy Yang due to the Unit 2 outage, and lower generation from Victorian hydro assets.
Pool generation volume (GWh)
Pool generation volume refers to electricity that AGL generates that is sold into the National Electricity Market and the Western Australian Wholesale Energy Market (together termed “the pool”) and considers marginal loss factors, non-scheduled generation and auxiliary usage.
FY20 data includes Perth Energy electricity generation volumes.
