- Accepting submissions
On 15 November 2019 the AER released a discussion paper to commence a review of ring-fencing arrangements for transmission network service providers (TNSPs). This paper seeks input from stakeholders to inform the development of an updated Electricity Transmission Ring-fencing Guideline.
Invitation for submissions
We welcome stakeholder feedback on all aspects of transmission ring-fencing. Submissions are due by the close of business 31 January 2020.
The purpose of ring-fencing is to prevent regulated businesses from discriminating in favour of their related parties to the disadvantage competitors operating in these markets. Ring-fencing helps consumers by supporting competition in markets for electricity services and the efficiency of regulated network services.
