Energy market bodies COVID-19 response

The three energy market bodies - the AER, AEMC and AEMO - have written to the Commonwealth Minister for Energy and Emissions outlining an agreed set of objectives and criteria for considering altering the implementation dates for some key market reforms and rule changes. It also provides an initial view of an adjusted work plan for the market bodies and industry.

This follows the advice of 26 March 2020 that the three market bodies were collaborating to consider the timeframes for implementation of market reforms to ease the pressure on industry in responding to the impacts of COVID-19.

The letter advises that the market bodies will provide a more detailed view of the industry work plan addressing all regulatory work, shortly.
