Overview

In the annual benchmarking reports we (the AER) examine the relative efficiency of the distribution and transmission electricity network service providers. In doing this we consider the characteristics of each network business, and how their productivity compares at the aggregate level and for the outputs they deliver to consumers. We developed the report using publically available data that we collected after an extensive consultation process that aligned with the development of our Expenditure Forecast Assessment Guideline.

Enquiries about these reports should be directed to the AER at AERInquiry@aer.gov.au, or call on 1300 585 165.

Updates

On 11 October 2019 we published a data-only update to the 2018 annual benchmarking results for distribution service providers. This update reflects corrections to operating expenditure data for the 2017 year (AusNet Services, CitiPower, Powercor and United Energy) and the 2016 year (AusNet Services only).
