Market Reviews & Advice

In our reviews and advice we take a long term view of what needs to be done to deliver reliable, secure energy at the best price for consumers. We conduct reviews and provide advice in accordance with terms of reference provided by the nation’s energy ministers and can also formally initiate our own reviews on matters related to the rules. In addition, the AEMC has a technology-focused work program to inform our advice to governments and analysis of rule changes requests. Reports and papers relating to our technology program are also included here, and are denoted with a SEA reference.
