AER publishes electricity network service provider information

Today the AER published information on regulated electricity distribution and transmission businesses. The information was collected by the AER for detailed expenditure analysis, and has been provided in response to Regulatory Information Notices (RIN responses) issued to the businesses. Businesses covered are:

State Distribution businesses Transmission businesses
Qld Energex, Ergon Energy Powerlink
SA SA Power Networks ElectraNet
Tas Aurora Energy  n/a
Vic Citipower, Jemena, Powercor, SP AusNet, United Energy SP AusNet


The AER is currently validating the Category Analysis information, which is likely to result in revised responses from several businesses. As such, RIN responses are likely to be updated in the coming weeks and otherwise may be updated at any time. To subscribe to email alerts for updates select ‘Performance report’ under project "Type" on the My account subscription page.

This information continues the series of regulated business information to be published by the AER. Category Analysis information from ACT and NSW distributors, and transmission businesses in NSW and Tasmania is included in the information provided in the current regulatory proposals submitted by the businesses.


The AER collects information from regulated businesses to monitor outcomes against AER determinations, issue performance reports and prepare for future determinations.

Information requirements have evolved with our regulatory responsibilities but generally include the following information:

  • Revenues and expenditures
  • Incentive scheme information
  • Network metrics (such as asset age and network size).
