Wholesale gas and electricity markets are where generators, distributors and retailers buy and sell energy based on supply and demand.
Our monitoring and reporting role in wholesale energy markets is to ensure everyone is participating fairly and effectively on behalf of Australian consumers.
Our activities include monitoring market dispatch and prices, participant bidding and rebidding, network constraints and outages, demand forecasts and forecasts of production and capacity. We report on market activity and outcomes, prices outside normal thresholds and compliance monitoring activities.
We inform policymakers, market participants and the community of our findings through regular trusted reporting and analysis by our subject matter experts in key publications such as the Wholesale markets quarterly and the State of the energy market report.
