In recent times, interest has emerged from different stakeholders about the impact of extreme weather-related events on electricity network performance, and their effect on communities.

We acknowledge that there is uncertainty about the future impacts of climate change which is creating challenges about the adaptability and recovery of communities.

Like many other entities, the AER is also thinking about the future effects of climate change and especially the impact on electricity networks and the community more broadly and the way we regulate in this uncertain environment. To support broader discussions around network resilience, the AER is publishing a note to assist Network Service Providers (NSPs), consumer groups and advocates understand how resilience-related funding would be treated under the NER.
