On the 9 December 2011 the AER published the fifth State of the energy market report.
The report provides an overview of Australia's electricity and gas markets over the past 12 to 18 months. It supplements the AER's extensive technical and compliance reporting on the energy sector and is intended to meet the needs of a wide audience, including government, industry and the broader community.
The 2011 edition consists of a market overview, supported by four chapters on the electricity and gas sectors. It focuses on activity over the past 12–18 months in those jurisdictions and areas in which the AER has regulatory responsibilities.
