Ring-fencing Guideline: Submission in response to the AER’s Draft Guideline


David Havyatt

Energy Consumers Australia (ECA) congratulates the Australian Energy Regulator (the AER) on the forthright approach it has taken to ring-fencing in its Draft Guideline (the Guideline).

In this submission, ECA has proposed a number of practical suggestions that could be incorporated into the Guideline to improve its effectiveness.
