Smart Regulation for a 21st Century Energy System

27 July 2016

In a speech to the Clean Energy Council’s Clean Energy Summit, AEMC Chairman John Pierce called on the energy sector to focus on the interests of consumers.  The traditional, centralised energy supply model is being challenged by new products and services, including renewables like wind and solar Mr Pierce said. But much of the current debate is still inwardly focused on the industry when it should be going beyond renewables alone – because the change we are seeing in the market is increasingly led by consumers; and all about making sure consumers can make the choices that are best for them so they have greater control over how they manage and use their electricity.
