Retail energy market update
Release date: 
27 November 2019


On 27 November 2019 the AER published retail energy market performance data. We published five quarters of data from Q4 2017-18 to Q4 2018-19 and five years of data from 2014-15 to 2018-19. The data is published in an Excel format to enable stakeholders to easily download and use the statistics.

We are publishing this data to accompany the release of our Annual Retail Markets Report 2018‑19.

We have split the data into three separate spreadsheets, which are modelled on the schedules in the guideline. These spreadsheets contain:

  • Schedule 2: customer numbers, switching, contracts, meter installations, tariffs;
  • Schedule 3: complaints, debt (non-hardship), Centrepay, missed pay on time discounts, credit collections, payment plans, disconnections; and
  • Schedule 4: hardship customer numbers, hardship debt, hardship concessions, hardship payments, hardship program information, hardship assistance offered, hardship disconnections and hardship reconnections.

There is a large amount of data provided in these spreadsheets, however if additional data is required please email
