Confidentiality claims

The confidentiality template includes an approximate indication of the proportion and comparative proportion of material in Jemena's regulatory proposal for 2016-20 and Regulatory Information Notice (RIN) response that is subject to a claim of confidentiality compared to that which is not.

The AER has published its proposed negotiated distribution service criteria (NDSC) to apply to CitiPower, Powercor, Jemena, AusNet Services and United Energy for the 2016-20 regulatory control period. The negotiating criteria set out the principles that distribution network service providers must adhere to in negotiating terms and conditions for negotiated distribution services.

Issues paper

On 10 June 2015 the AER released an Issues paper on Jemena's regulatory proposals. The paper sets out our initial impressions of the distributors' proposals, including what we think will be some of the key issues for our assessment. We hope this paper is helpful for readers to form their own views on the distributors' proposals. The issues paper signals the commencement of a comprehensive consultation process.

We have also released a Consumer guide to the Victorian electricity distribution pricing review 2016–20. This guide is intended to give stakeholders a better understanding of our process for reviewing electricity distribution proposals.

On 30 June 2015 the AER released an addendum to the Issues paper to explain in more detail the differences between the Victorian businesses return on debt proposals that were not identified in the original version of the Issues paper.

Stakeholder forum - Regulatory proposals

On 22 June 2015, the AER held a public forum in Melbourne on the revenue proposals submitted by the Victorian electricity distribution network service providers including Jemena. A large number of stakeholders attended the forum.

The presentations from the Consumer Challenge Panel are the independent views of CCP members and do not necessarily reflect the views of the AER.

Stakeholder forum - Demand forecast workshop
