Strategic priorities

Our strategic priorities were developed by the Commission with consumer, industry and other interested stakeholders. They will guide our market development work and inform the advice we provide to governments.

Price trends

Our review of household electricity price trends looks at what factors are driving prices over the next three years to 2015/16 in each state and territory and consolidates them to provide a national average picture.

Power of choice

The Power of Choice Review set out substantial reforms for the National Electricity Market which are being implemented by a series of rule changes and supporting reviews. We want consumers to have more choices in the way they use electricity and manage their bills.


This section contains the latest versions of the rules which electricity and gas businesses must observe.

Rule Changes

To inform our assessment of requests to make changes to the rules, we ask for the views of all interested stakeholders. Go to these pages for details of consultations and decisions on all rule changes.


We undertake reviews to inform our recommendations to governments on how the market arrangements can be developed to deliver reliable and efficient electricity and gas supplies.
