The AEMC has released a discussion paper that reviews our strategic priorities for energy market development. We are seeking your views on three proposed priorities – a ‘consumer priority’, a ‘gas priority’ and a ‘market priority’.

The proposed consumer and market priorities build on two of the existing priorities developed in our first strategic priorities review in 2011. The proposed gas priority reflects the growing importance of gas as a fuel source and export commodity. We are encouraging stakeholders to participate in the consultation process, including attending our workshops in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne and submitting a written response to our consultation. Submissions close on Monday 27 May 2013.

Our stakeholder workshops were advertised on 4 April 2013 and registrations close on Friday 19 April 2013. We remind interested stakeholders who are yet to register to refer to our registrations page, by clicking one of the links below, as soon as possible as numbers are limited.
