Australian Energy Week Conference 2017 – Speech by AEMC Chief Executive

21 June 2017

AEMC Chief Executive, Anne Pearson, presented at the Australian Energy Week Conference on Wednesday 21 June 2017. The speech outlines how energy markets facilitate change that benefits consumers. It also highlights the role for all participants and interested stakeholders in helping reform Australia’s energy markets. 

“Can markets deliver change? Yes. Markets are a low cost way of shepherding change while encouraging innovation. Are they perfect? No. So we use regulation when the market, for whatever reason, is not delivering outcomes that benefit consumers.”
