Proposed negotiated distribution service criteria

Issues paper

On 7 April 2020 the AER released a joint Issues paper on AusNet Services, CitiPower, Powercor, Jemena and United Energy’s regulatory proposals. The paper sets out our initial impressions of all the distributors' proposals, including what we think will be some of the key issues for our assessment and areas in which we are particularly interested in receiving stakeholder feedback. We hope this paper is helpful for readers to form their own views on the proposal, as well as to engage on the specific areas of interest outlined. The issues paper signals the commencement of a comprehensive consultation process. Given the current circumstances of COVID-19, the AER understands the ability of stakeholders to respond may be impacted and we will be flexible to assist in the engagement and consultation process.

Submissions on AusNet Services' revenue proposal and the issues paper closed 3 June 2020. 

Stakeholder forum

Due to the implications of COVID-19, the public forum was facilitated by uploading presentations developed by stakeholders on 22 April 2020 to our website, with an additional opportunity to submit questions.

The period for asking forum questions has now closed. Responses are now published on the Public forum page. This page contains all the presentations and responses uploaded across the five Victorian distributors and other stakeholders.
