Issues paper

On 27 August 2021 the AER began a process to develop a standardised ANS model to use in future electricity distribution determinations. The standardised ANS model is intended to replace the distribution network service provider (distributor) specific ANS models that are currently in use.

We are seeking feedback on the key areas of consideration set out in the issues paper, including the accompanying preliminary standardised ANS model. We welcome all stakeholders to participate in the consultation process.

Following the review of all written submissions, we intend to host a workshop/s where we will discuss the key issues from the submissions. Following the workshop/s, we will have regard to all stakeholder comments (in written submission and in the workshop) to develop a final model with an explanatory note.



We invited written submissions on the preliminary standardised ANS model. Submissions closed on Friday 24 September 2021.
