Electricity network price case in Federal Court – audio

Author

Oliver Derum

Hearings commenced today in the Full Federal Court of Australia for the Australian Energy Regulator’s (AER) appeal of a decision overturning its revenue determinations for five energy networks in NSW and the ACT.

PIAC was also today granted leave by the Federal Court to participate in the Federal Court review, with Energy Consumers Australia’s continuing support.

The Commonwealth Minister for Environment and Energy has also been granted leave to make written submissions on the framework issues and what the laws means by the ‘long term interest of consumers’

I spoke to AER Chair Paula Conboy during a break in the hearings to get her take on the case.
