On 28 March 2023, the AER published an Issues Paper highlighting some of the key elements of Evoenergy's proposal.

Background

Evoenergy is an electricity distribution network service provider. Its next five year regulatory control period commences on 1 July 2024 to 30 June 2029 (2024–29).

Under the NER, Evoenergy is required to submit its regulatory proposal to us by 31 January 2023. However, prior to that date, the NER require us to review the current F&A paper that applies to Evoenergy and decide whether to amend or replace it.

In June 2022, Evoenergy submitted the methodology it proposes to use to prepare the forecasts of operating expenditure and capital expenditure that form part of its regulatory proposal and the AER, in July 2022, published the final framework for Evoenergy.
