Overview

On 2 March 2020, the AER published a consultation paper on the determination of the priorities and objectives to be addressed through the preparation of network service performance reports for the electricity and gas network service providers (NSPs) we regulate. 

To date we have not prepared network performance reports on regulated gas networks. We intend to commence this reporting in 2021. In order to commence this reporting, we are required under the NGL and NGR to consult with stakeholders in order to determine appropriate priorities and objectives to be addressed through the preparation of these reports.

Relatedly, in 2011 we published our final decision on the priorities and objectives of electricity NSP performance reporting. We consider it timely that we undertake a review and update.

We are consulting on both electricity and gas network performance reporting priorities and objectives through a combined process. Submission are invited by 31 March 2020.
