Current status is Final
The Commission has released its Final Decision on monitoring the development of energy retail competition in South Australia, which sets out
the detailed framework for the assessment of energy retail competition in South
The final approach outlined in the paper has been informed by submissions
received on the earlier June 2004 discussion Paper, but has retained the broad
framework outlined in the discussion Paper.
Consistent with the approach the Commission has been applying to date in
monitoring the development of the electricity retail market, seven key
indicators will be monitored, covering aspects such as the level of retailer
activity, extent of customer awareness and switching, extent and nature of
offerings made by retailers and barriers to entry faced by retailers.
The Commission does not intend to engage in another formal round of
consultation at this stage, but welcomes receiving comments at any stage from
interested parties, and such comments will be considered in any future
modification to the competition indicators.
The September 2004 statistical report is due to be released shortly, which
will be the first of the six-monthly substantive energy FRC monitoring reports
to be issued adopting the modified framework.
