The AER’s 2016–17 Annual report, published on 7 December 2017, details our work throughout the year and our performance against targets laid out in our Statement of intent to the Council of Australian Governments Energy Council and the Australian Government.
The energy market is in transition, and our work takes place in the context of significant technological, behavioural and systemic change. The market faces significant challenges, with energy affordability being a central concern for consumers. Compounding this pressure, changing generation technologies and market dynamics have intensified focus on the future of Australia’s energy supply.
Our Annual Report outlines key initiatives we are undertaking to address these issues, including initiatives jointly undertaken with other energy market bodies.
