ModelsBack to top
On 18 February 2022 the AER released its model for calculating DMO prices for 2022–23.
As set out in the DMO 2022–23 draft determination the AER’s approach is to use a cost build-up approach to calculate the DMO price, taking into account forecast costs for wholesale electricity, network, environment and retail costs. The model calculates the expected changes in these costs for 2022–23 for each area and customer type.
The information contained in the model is set out in the DMO 2022–23 draft determination, and we are publishing the model to provide stakeholders with additional transparency on how we propose to calculate the DMO prices for 2022–23.
