Australian Energy Regulator (AER)
The AER provides the regulation services.
This national framework promotes competition to deliver lowest cost energy services – something that benefits all Australian consumers. It allows energy to be traded across state borders to provide the lowest available cost energy to all consumers.
But the lessons in applying this new structure are still being learned. Victoria has provided leadership in the development of the national energy market and their institutions - and will continue to do so. In addition, the Victorian Government will continue to advocate that the national energy institutions be governed openly and transparently in the interests of consumers.
