AER releases Victorian Framework and Approach preliminary positions - request for submissions

On 6 June 2014, the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) decided to replace the Victorian Framework and Approach in response to requests from the five Victorian electricity distributors, CitiPower, Powercor, Jemena, SP AusNet and United Energy. Following an initial consultation we have developed a preliminary positions paper.

Invitation for submissions

We invite submissions on the AER's preliminary positions on a replacement framework & approach by 21 July 2014.

Submissions should be emailed “Attention: Mr Chris Pattas, General Manager, Networks Branch” at with the following title in the email: AER's preliminary positions on a replacement framework & approach.

Alternatively, written submissions can also be sent to:

The AER prefers that all submissions be sent in an electronic format in Microsoft Word or other text readable document form and publicly available, to facilitate an informed, transparent and robust consultation process.

Accordingly, submissions will be treated as public documents and posted on the AER's website, unless prior arrangements are made with the AER to treat the submission, or portions of it, as confidential. Those wishing to submit confidential information are requested to:
