Australian Energy Market Operator


The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) was established by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) on 1 July 2009 to manage the National Electricity Market (NEM) in the eastern and south-eastern states and Australian gas markets.

In the years following their establishment, AEMO’s responsibilities have progressively grown. This has included adding various gas market functions, and becoming the market and independent power system operator for Western Australia from 2015.
