Report
Description

This is the ACCC's first report as part of its public inquiry to monitor the prices, profits and margins in the supply of electricity in the National Electricity Market.

This report sets out the ACCC’s analytical framework for monitoring and provides information about expectations of market outcomes and market participant behaviour.

Energy affordability remains a top-order issue for Australians. In August 2018, the then Treasurer, the Hon. Scott Morrison, MP, directed the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) to hold a long-running public inquiry into the supply of electricity in the National Electricity Market (NEM).

The inquiry will run for seven years, ending on 31 August 2025, with the ACCC required to report no less frequently than every six months. The ACCC will also provide information to the market as appropriate. This first report focuses on setting out the analytical framework for monitoring and provides information about expectations of market outcomes and market participant behaviour, as required under our Terms of Reference.
