On Monday 19 May 2014 we are holding a forum in Melbourne to identify what matters most for residential and small business consumers in relation to energy market development

Last year we published the second “AEMC Strategic Priorities for Energy Market Development” – providing overarching objectives for our work program which are focussed on addressing long-term consumer interests.

In recent discussions with consumer representatives we have heard requests for more opportunities to engage with us, especially in relation to strategic issues affecting energy markets.

To further our engagement with consumer representatives we intend to host two forums this year to explore issues in relation to the ability of consumers to benefit from, and contribute to, the effective functioning of both electricity and gas markets.

Individual consumers are increasingly aware of our work and starting to participate in our processes, particularly in the public consultation for individual rule requests and reviews. We are now hoping to extend our discussions with consumer advocates so you can help us further our understanding of key issues for consumers to inform the provision of advice to governments and our rule making.

The first forum will be held in Melbourne on the morning of 19 May 2014.
