UCL Australia academic appointed to the Consumer Challenge Panel of the Australian Energy Regulator
1 July 2013
The Australian Energy Regulator (AER) has today announced the members of its inaugural Consumer Challenge Panel, part of planned reforms to the way consumer interests will be included in setting electricity and gas network prices.
UCL Australia’s Dr Gillian Owen has been appointed to become one of thirteen members to the panel for an initial three year term.
The AER has established its Consumer Challenge Panel to assist in making decisions on energy network costs that reflect the long term interests of consumers.
“Our announcements today are an important step in moving Australia towards an improved regulatory regime that will ensure consumers pay no more than is necessary for a safe and reliable supply of electricity and gas,” AER Chairman Andrew Reeves said.
Members of the panel will provide advice on whether spending proposals are justified in terms of the services to be delivered to consumers and whether they are in their long term interests.
