Reorienting regulation for Australian energy customers

Australia’s energy consumers are witnessing the most significant industry disruption since electrification and the regulatory framework is yet to catch up, a network industry conference will hear today.

Key energy leaders including Energy Consumers Australia Chair, Louise Sylvan, Australian Energy Regulator Chair Paula Conboy and the CEO of the largest Australian gas distributor, Ben Wilson, will address the ENA conference in Brisbane, ‘Reorienting Regulation’.

The forum will focus on how energy regulation can stimulate, rather than frustrate, innovation in network services and new markets in distributed generation, storage and demand management; and customer’s need for choice and control in their energy use.
