Following the release of our Statement of Expectations of energy businesses the AER called on retailers to provide additional data on a voluntary basis to enable us to have visibility of the effect of COVID-19 on the retail energy market. This is to allow us to act quickly and support the market where we may need to.
Most of the additional data is a subset of that already provided by retailers as part of the normal quarterly reporting cycle, but on a more frequent basis. 30-90 day debt and alternative debt arrangements are not provided in the normal reporting cycle.
The charts in our dashboard showcase high level trends in the retail market, and we publish updates monthly.
Our COVID-19 data is less robust than our quarterly data, due to the voluntary nature of the data provision.
