The AEMC has initiated the fifth annual review of retail energy competition in the national electricity market (NEM). The review focuses on small customers in retail energy markets, which includes residential and small business consumers. It will consider how competition is evolving and provide an overview of the current state and future development of retail competition across the NEM.
The annual retail energy competition reviews are undertaken in accordance with agreed terms of reference by the COAG Energy Council.
The information sheet sets out our proposed scope and approach for the 2018 review.
