Release date: 
9 June 2006


On 13 June 2006 the Australian Energy Regulator released its decision to publish indicators of the impact that transmission networks can have on the rest of the electricity market. This is the first report in response to that decision. Future reports will build on any responses received on this and subsequent reports.

The aim of this report is to:

  • identify the market impact and causal elements of constraints
  • provide information to participants that will be used as a tool for guiding behavioural decisions, therefore promoting efficient market participant behaviour
  • be used as a tool to develop possible economic incentives.
