The draft guidance covers:

  1. matters the AER is likely to have regard to in considering whether to apply the amended NEOs to processes which are underway at the time the amendments take effect.
  2. how the AER may operationlise the amended electricity objective to Ausgrid, Endeavour Energy, Essential Energy, Evoenergy, TasNetworks Distribution, TasNetworks Transmission and Power and Water Corporation for the 2024-29 regulatory determinations.
