Our approval role

The AER is required by the National Electricity Rules (NER) to assess applications by network service providers to amend their regulatory revenue determination to include the revenue required for a contingent project.

Contingent projects are major network infrastructure assets which have been flagged in long-term investment plans.

When a network business has met the requirements to request cost recovery from consumers for one of these projects, it submits a contingent project application to us for approval.

We undergo a rigorous assessment process to ensure that consumers pay no more than is needed to build the new infrastructure.
