To work for Australia's future productivity and living standards by contributing to a decarbonising, affordable and reliable energy system for all consumers.


The shared values of the AEMC are leadership, engagement and integrity. Each of us seeks to reflect those values in how we act and discharge our functions.

Leadership reflects our desire to foster and support informed debate on energy market development. We engage with governments, consumers and market participants to promote dialogue and understanding. We value different perspectives and welcome meaningful debate on energy market issues. We share our knowledge, and empower those who look to us for advice.

Engagement is at the core of everything we do. We aim to build and maintain strong relationships with stakeholders and we value their input to our rule making and strategic advice to governments. We focus on pursuing opportunities for consultation and expanding the range of organisations, groups and individuals with whom we collaborate.

Integrity speaks to the respect we have for our stakeholders, our high standards of impartiality, objectivity and the transparent processes that frame the work we undertake. An ethical, reliable and consistent approach is paramount in all our dealings with governments, industry and consumers.
