On 29 October 2015, we released our preliminary decision on Jemena’s distribution determination for the 2016-20 regulatory control period.

We also released a Fact Sheet on our review of Jemena’s proposal to accompany and summarise our preliminary decision. The purpose of this Fact Sheet is to make our decision accessible to a wide ranging consumer audience.


The AER must publish certain models with its preliminary determination for Jemena.



Preliminary determination

The AER sought submissions from interested stakeholders on our preliminary determination. Submissions closed on 6 January 2016.

These submissions can be found under the section 'Revised Proposal'.

Stakeholder forum

The AER held a public forum on its preliminary decisions on 17 November 2015.

Late submissions

Correspondence between Jemena and AER on timetable for consultation

Jemena sent the AER a letter dated 11 November 2015 raising concerns that the AER's consultation process does not provide stakeholders with a fair opportunity to properly understand the AER's decision and analysis, and to respond to it. This letter and the AER's response is attached.

Also attached is a letter previously sent by the AER to Jemena regarding a late, unsolicited submission from Jemena, which the AER did not consider in the preliminary decision or publish on its website.
