New Responsibilities in the National Energy Market

01 Sep 2005Archived News Climate Change Matters

On 1 July the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) and the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) took over responsibility for the regulatory functions in the electricity market previously carried out by the National Electricity Code Administrator (NECA) and the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). The National Electricity Market Management Company (NEMMCO) has not changed. The NECA responsibilities have been split between the two new organisations, and the AER has taken over the former responsibilities of the ACCC. The AER will also eventually take over the ACCC's responsibilities in the gas market of regulating transmission lines.
