AER invites submissions on the implications of COVID-19 for the DMO price determination for 2020-21

On 1 April 2020, the AER released a letter seeking stakeholder views on COVID-19 impacts we should take into account in making our DMO determination for 2020-21. 

We acknowledge the scope and scale of COVID-19 impacts are uncertain and may be difficult to quantify at this stage. We are mindful of the time and resource pressures that all stakeholders are currently facing, but note the AER is unable to delay its decision beyond the 1 May time frame under the Regulations if the DMO is to apply for 2020-21.

Interested parties are invited to submit written responses by close of business Thursday, 9 April 2020.

Questions should be addressed to
