Submission to the Australian Energy Market Commission on the consolidated rule request - National Electricity Amendment (Economic Regulation of Network Service Providers) Rule 2011

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Sullivan, Damian.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence (unpub.) 2011Description: 15 p. : ill. PDF.Other title: AEMC Rule Change — Economic Regulation of Network Service Providers (ERC0134) | A critique of the Victorian retail electricity market | BSL submission — Economic regulation of network service providers (ERC0134) | [Submission to] The Chairman Australian Energy Market Commission.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence (BSL) is grateful for the opportunity to comment on the rule change proposals submitted by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) and the Energy Users Rule Change Committee (EURCC) regarding economic regulation of network service providers (NSPs). The proposals identify significant deficiencies in the framework for the economic regulation of NSPs under the National Electricity Rules (NER). Among other things, as they stand, the NER have allowed major increases in investment expenditure by distribution and transmission networks, well in excess of efficient levels. These increased capital costs are being passed on to consumers, contributing to dramatic increases in residential electricity prices. Rising electricity prices are causing financial strain for many residential customers. The impact of escalating electricity prices on low-income households is particularly concerning. Low-income households are especially vulnerable to electricity price rises because they spend a greater proportion of their income on electricity and other basic needs compared to other households.Availability: (1)

Transforming the electricity sector /

by Garnaut, Ross | Garnaut Climate Change Review.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Commonwealth of Australia 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Garnaut Climate Change Review update paper ; no. 8, 2011.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 54-59Summary: This paper discusses the impact of the carbon price on changes in electricity supply over time, and on prices. The effects of other sources of price increases are also examined?both those that are unavoidable, and those that may be the result of regulatory and structural imperfections in the National Electricity Market. There are signs that lower growth in demand is reducing the need for investment. In addition, improving the regulation of the electricity market would reduce pressures for price increases. It is possible that these developments could go a long way towards offsetting the addition to electricity prices of the introduction of a carbon price.Availability: (1)
