Vale Andrew Reeves (former AER Chair)

It is with great sadness that we advise you of the passing of Andrew Reeves (AER Board member and/or Chair from July 2008 – September 2014).

Andrew made an enormous contribution to the shape of the AER working closely with his Board colleagues and staff. He led the AER through a very difficult time of policy development and change, including the better regulation reforms to network regulation, the roll-out of the National Energy Retail Law and Rules and new roles for the AER in monitoring wholesale gas markets.

Andrew was a kind and generous man, committed to the energy sector and its development.

Prior to his AER appointment, Mr Reeves was Commissioner of the Tasmanian Government Prices Oversight Commission and Regulator of the Tasmanian electricity supply industry, responsible for technical and economic regulation of the sector, including performance standards and prices for distribution services and retail tariffs. He was also the Commissioner of the Utilities Commission of the Northern Territory.

A service will be held for Andrew on Friday 7 May at 12.30 PM in New Town, Tasmania.
