Annual Wholesale Electricity Market Effectiveness Reports

Each year, the ERA prepares a report on how the Wholesale Electricity Market performed for the Minister for Energy. The report is designed to highlight important events and trends during the year to assist in monitoring and facilitating market performance.

As part of each review, the ERA seeks feedback from stakeholders through a discussion paper. The feedback we receive is considered as we prepare our report.

In addition to the annual reviews, the ERA also undertakes a triennial review to assess the extent to which the Wholesale Electricity Market objectives are being achieved. These reports are delivered to the Minister for Energy to table in Parliament. Once that occurs, we make the report available on our website after removing any commercially sensitive information.

2017/18 review of electricity market performance

The ERA has commenced its review of the Wholesale Electricity Market for 2017/18. This year, the annual report and triennial report will be combined into the one review process.

On 22 December 2018, we released a discussion paper seeking comment from interested parties on issues that will assist us to undertake the review.

The consultation period closes on Friday, 8 February 2019. Public submissions received in response to the discussion paper will be published once received.
